According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:
Former Vikings DT Letroy Guion considering Ravens, Patriots, Packers Has visited Pats. Will visit Pack Sunday unless has deal w/another team
— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) March 14, 2014
The Packers have familiarity with Guion as a member of the NFC North divison rival Vikings for all six years of the defensive lineman's career.
After playing sparingly the few few years of his career, Guion has seen increased playing time the past couple seasons in Minnesota, starting every game he's played in the past two years.
More of a run stuffer than a pass rusher, Guion had the best season of his career in 2012, starting 15 games while making 31 tackles and two sacks.
Based on the interest the Packers have shown in reportedly scheduling visits with several defensive linemen, including Vance Walker, it's clear the Packers are trying to find some hole-plugging big bodies to offset the potential losses of B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly and C.J. Wilson.
The Packers are likely confident in their pass-rushing defensive linemen they know will be back in 2013 like Mike Daniels and Datone Jones. Now they need a run-stopping complement. At 6-4 and 303 lbs., Guion may be that type of player.
Where the Packers stand in the Walker sweepstakes is unknown. According to his agent, Walker will be visiting the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but there's no word on the Packers.
