Packers, Letroy Guion Agree To Restructured Deal

Letroy Guion signed a restructured contract with the Packers following his PED suspension, a source tells ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky (Twitter link). The new deal will save the Packers a little bit of money and give them additional time before having to make the payments.

Letroy GuionThe new deal delays Guion’s offseason roster bonuses, which were initially to be paid out on Saturday and again on May 2, back to Weeks 9 and 15 of the season. They were reduced from $400K each to $300K. Guion’s base salary remains in tact, but he will automatically lose four weeks of his $1.7MM payout during the suspension ($400K). All in all, Guion’s slip up will likely cost him $600K.

We learned earlier this week that the defensive tackle had been suspended four games to start the 2017 season. The veteran was previously suspended three games in 2015 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Guion played in 15 games last season, compiling 30 tackles. He hasn’t recorded a sack since the 2014 season.

        • nope, wrong again you aren’t entitled to good feelings. there is a reason a board of directors is chosen because otherwise every wind that blew though would scare the little “fans” and they would all demand to fire everyone every year. Check the browns and see how it works
