Report: Packers DL Letroy Guion to avoid jail time
Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion has agreed to a deferred prosecution agreement after he was arrested last month for felony marijuana possession and felony possession of a firearm, according to a report from ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky.
The agreement, which will allow Guion to avoid jail time but will result in probation, will be signed within the next couple of weeks, the report says. Packers general manager Ted Thompson said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that he is monitoring Guion's situation.
Guion is set to enter free agency after playing one season in Green Bay. Over 16 games last season, the 27-year-old recorded 41 total tackles and 3.5 sacks. The Minnesota Vikings selected Guion in the fifth round of the 2008 draft out of Florida State.
Guion could still be disciplined under the NFL's personal conduct policy.
