The 28-year-old Guion has spent each of the past two seasons with the Packers, appearing in 13 games during the 2015 campaign and registering 21 tackles.
Guion was suspended for three games this past season after an arrest for felony marijuana possession. Per Michael Cohen and John Diedrich of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Guion was also previously charged with stalking and was involved in two domestic violence incidents, although two of the charges were dropped and one was resolved out of court.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy expressed disappointment in Guion last year for his legal issues, but he also seemed confident he would redeem himself in that regard, according to Cohen:
He has a personal situation he is with right now. We had a long conversation after his incident down there in Florida. It's in the legal process right now. He made a mistake. Frankly, I'm disappointed. He's disappointed. ... But all of our players know that our program is about protecting the brand and the tradition of the Green Bay Packers. Those were the first things that came out of his mouth in the phone call. He made a mistake, so we’re working forward.
Guion has stayed out of trouble off the field since that incident, although his on-field production dropped off a bit in 2015. In 2014, he started all 16 games for the Pack, racking up 41 tackles and 3.5 sacks along the way.
If Guion can return to the form he displayed in 2014, re-signing him will be a significant move for Green Bay.
He is capable of playing defensive end in the Packers' 3-4 scheme, but if they lose nose tackle B.J. Raji to free agency, the 322-pound Guion can move into the middle as well.
Versatility is extremely important in Green Bay's defense, and that is arguably Guion's greatest asset.
The 2015 season was a difficult one for him due to the suspension, but with the knowledge that he has a full 16-game slate ahead of him in 2016, he has a chance to be a high-impact player for the Packers once again.
