It remains unclear whether the Green Bay Packers will consider re-signing Letroy Guion after his arrest for marijuana and gun possession in his home state of Florida. However, new details have surfaced that suggest the situation isn't as dire as first reported.

According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the firearm found in Guion's possession was unloaded and in a box that also contained a Minnesota carrying permit. Guion, of course, spent the first five years of his career with the Minnesota Vikings. As for the roughly $190,000 found in Guion's vehicle, it can be traced to paychecks from the Packers. The money was reportedly going to his family in Starke, Florida.

While those details may change the way Green Bay and the NFL consider those elements of the arrest, there's still the matter of the 357 grams of marijuana as well as the erratic driving that initially tipped off the police.

The only thing that seems clear at this point is the situation is far from settled.
