Packers Signed Former Viking DT Letroy Guion

All the big name signings are over and it's just bargain shopping from now until the draft. The Packers are kicking the tires on former Vikings DT Letroy Guion:
At that price, there's no guarantee he even makes the opening week roster. The Vikings had been using him at nose tackle since 2010, and he hasn't been very good in that role. However, with B.J. Raji expected to play NT, the Packers probably have a different role in mind for Guion and Pro Football Focus noted that he was useful as a sub in 2010.

He's still young (he'll turn 27 this summer), he only missed five games over the past four seasons, and he fits with their rumored interest in finding smaller, athletic defensive lineman (he weighs just over 300 lbs.). He has the potential to be a useful role player next season, and his contract won't be a problem if they decide to go with someone else.
