Guion was arrested in Hawaii this offseason for intoxicated driving. The lineman had a blood alcohol content of .086 an hour after the arrest – and smelled of both alcohol and marijuana at the time.
Before the DUI, Guion was already set to serve a season-opening four-game suspension for a separate infraction – a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. It seems that all of the headaches were just too much for the Packers to deal with.
Guion started 15 games for the Packers in 2016, so his production will certainly be missed. The Packers may look for outside reinforcements but, for now, they project to have Christian Ringo, rookie Montravius Adams, and Brian Price at nose tackle. Adams, unfortunately, will miss time with a stress fracture in his foot.
The 30-year-old racked up 30 tackles last year and ranked 63rd in performance among Pro Football Focus’ 127 qualified interior defensive linemen.
