Packers' Letroy Guion suspended 4 games for PED violation

The embattled Packer lineman is back in the spotlight, this time for a suspension unrelated to his previous drug issues.

With free agency hours away, the Green Bay Packers got some bad news regarding one of their defensive linemen.

Defensive tackle Letroy Guion has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, as Jay Sorgi of reports.

This is the second time in three years Guion has been suspended. He missed three games in 2015 after violating the league's substance abuse policy, which is separate from the one the NFL has on performance enhancers. This is why Guion is not being suspended for more than four games.

While many assume the Packers may part ways with Guion, ESPN's Rob Demovsky says the team has restructured Guion's contract so his release is not a foregone conclusion.

Of course, there is still all of free agency and the draft to go so there is still a chance Guion will be cut by Green Bay. For the time being however, it seems the team is taking a wait and see approach with him. Another off field incident could change that.
