Prior to the Green Bay Packers signing Julius Peppers, there was a rumor going around that Jared Allen wanted to join their team. Vikings fans screamed foul at this, and didn’t want to see their former star sign with the division rival.
You can expect much less panic from fans in Minnesota about Green Bay’s most recent signing.
Former Vikings defensive tackle Letroy Guion has agreed to a one year deal with the Packers. He will compete for playing time with them.
Meanwhile, the Vikings upgraded their defensive line by the acquisition of defensive tackle Linval Joseph and the re-signing of defensive end Everson Griffen. They also have an open line of discussion with free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton.
Best of luck to Guion in the future…except when he’s playing the Vikings, of course.
