Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion has been suspended for three games following an off-season arrest and will appeal, reports ESPN's Rob Demovsky. 

Guion was notified of his suspension earlier this week, and his agent and lawyers quickly began preparing for an appeal, reports Demovsky. The NFL has yet to make an announcement about Guion's suspension. 

Guion was arrested in February for felony marijuana possession and felony possession of a firearm in Starke, Fla. In March, the charges against Guion were dismissed after he entered a plea deal and paid a $5,000 fine. 

After settling the case, Guion signed a one-year, $2.75 million deal with the Packers. He stands to lose over $480,000 if his three-game suspension is upheld. Guion is also suing police in Bradford County, Fla., court to recover possessions from his arrest, including his car and over $100,000 in cash.

Guion had 3.5 sacks, 32 combined tackles and one forced fumble in his first season with the Packers last year. He was a fifth-round pick of the Vikings in the 2008 draft.
