First reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers release defensive tackle, Letroy Guion.

Guion has been troubled since being drafted in 2008 by the Vikings in the fifth round.

He has been suspended for the first four games of the season before his release for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.

First in 2015, where he was pulled over with 357 grams of marijuana, $190,000 total in cash, and a semi-automatic handgun after not staying in the lane.

The latest came in June while driving under the influence. With a blood alcohol level of .086 percent.

When on the field, Guion has been a marginal player. With a career total of 108 tackles, 8.5 sacks.

The Packers, already thin on the defensive line, will also be without rookie Montravius Adams, who is expected to miss the start of the season in addition.

Guion started 15 games a season ago. In the end, the Packers had enough of his antics.

Packers’ executive vice president, general manager and director of football operations, Ted Thompson, confirmed his release minutes later.
