Guion signed a three-year extension with the Packers on Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Guion's three year extension could see him make up to $11.75 million and will keep him in green and gold until he is 31. The Packers have now locked up long-term deals with Guion and fellow defensive tackle Mike Daniels. This could be an indication that B.J. Raji, who is slated to become a free agent next month, is on his way out of Green Bay. Guion has four sacks and 65 tackles in his two seasons with the Packers.

Guion (suspension) was reinstated to the Packers' 53-man roster Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Guion served a three-game suspension after he was arrested in the offseason for possession of marijuana and an illegal firearm. One of the better performers on the Green Bay defense last season, Guion should immediately push Mike Pennel for a starting spot at the defensive end spot opposite Mike Daniels.

Guion's three-game NFL-imposed suspension will stand after the defensive lineman lost his appeal, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Guion -- who is a projected starter at defensive end in Green Bay's 3-4 defense -- will thus miss time out of the gate, leaving the team's defensive line shorthanded up front to start the season, with Datone Jones suspended for the Packers' regular-season opener.

Guion agreed to terms to rejoin the Packers in 2015-16 on a one-year contract, ESPN reports.

Guion had some offseason issues that have cheapened his contract heading into the season, especially considering a fine and possible suspension await him to start the season. When he becomes available, the big man figures to fit in at nose tackle for the Packers once again in 2015, with no real competition on the current roster. However, the Packers are in talks to re-sign B.J. Raji as well, and it's also possible they will target another tackle in the draft.

Guion will avoid criminal charges stemming from his Feb. 3 arrest, the Green Bay Press Gazette reports.

Guion's case originally included felony possession of marijuana charges, but these will be dropped following a no contest plea agreement with local authorities. The defensive tackle remains unsigned for 2015, but should still see an opportunity to earn a role with a team, though a potential personal conduct policy suspension may hurt his chances. Signing with the Packers (who he played for in 2014) remains a possibility.

Guion was arrested late Tuesday night on marijuana possession, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Guion was reportedly in talks for a long-term deal with the Packers before the news, heading into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent after being on a one-year deal in 2014. It's unclear how the charge will effect his availability moving forward, but the CBA change last season could reduce the potential penalty he would face.

Guion tallied four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's victory over the Vikings.

Guion (hamstring) is slated to start at nose tackle in place of B.J. Raji (biceps), Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Raji's torn biceps has opened the door for Guion, an offseason addition in free agency, to nab a starting gig. While defensive coordinator Dom Capers said that other players will help cover the void, the uptick in snaps should help Guion produce more than the 24.3 tackles that he averaged in the previous three seasons with the Vikings.

Guion (hamstring) was cleared to begin practicing Monday, ESPN reports.

Guion has missed the entirety of the Packers' preseason preparations thus far due to a pulled hamstring. Upon being signed from the Vikings' this offseason, Guion was expected to compete for the Packers' starting nose tackle position. While his injury certainly saw him lose ground in that race, B.J. Raji (biceps) being ruled out for the season has presented a new opportunity for Guion. As such, the veteran will aim to remain healthy and gear up quickly for Week 1, although Josh Boyd and Mike Pennel remain ahead of Guion on Green Bay's current depth chart.
