Letroy Guion of Green Bay Packers punshed with three-game ban by NFL

NFL head coaches, general managers and team owners absolutely hate the off-season for one very good reason, they have no control over their players.

The Green Bay Packers were hurt by this earlier in the year, when defensive tackle Letroy Guion was arrested by police in Starke, FL for possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm at a stop.

Well, that was months ago, and the punishment from the National Football League has finally come down, and it is not pretty.

According to a report from Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Roger Goodell and the rest of the NFL haven't looked too kindly on the Packers players' actions and have decided to punish him with a three game suspension.

The NFL doesn’t announce suspensions until appeals are completed, so there was no official word from the league, and it could still be reduced.

According to the ESPN report, Guion and the Packers have decided to appeal the suspension despite the fact that this photo was released after the tackle's arrest, showing just what the police found in his car.

What the hell does an NFL player need that much cannabis for!? Guion must have been on his way to one hell of a party.

Guion racked up 41 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 16 starts for the Packers last season, and losing him will be a real blow to their defensive line if his suspension is ultimately upheld, thanks to fellow lineman Datone Jones also being suspended for the first game of the season.

The Packers re-signed Guion to a one-year, $2.75 million contract shortly after the case was settled in March - he paid a $5000 fine in a plea deal that stopped a prosecution.
