The Packers have no personnel luck lately.
Any manager will tell you, the hardest thing is finding quality people. While the Packers have impressive players, they can’t seem to stay on the field long enough to make an impact.
Defensive Tackle Letroy Guion will start the season on the NFL’s suspended list after being hit with a four game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. It’s Guion’s second such suspension in three seasons as he spent the first three games of 2015 suspended for also violating the substance abuse policy.

Guion has two years left on a three year deal worth $11.25 million. He won’t be paid for the first four games, but that will not help with replacing his productivity. He played in 15 games last season, totaling 30 tackles on mostly running downs. While he has missed games due to suspension, he has only missed 1 game due to injury in three years. He will be eligible for off season activities and can play in the preseason, but once again Green Bay will have to make due for a chunk of the season without all of its core defensive players.
Should the Pack drop Guion immediately, or is he worth hanging on to in spite of the suspensions?
