While many of us were busy watching March Madness or doing something more productive with our weekends, Green Bay Packers GM was reportedly doing work.
First came the news about Guion this morning, courtesy of Rob Demovsky:
#Packers and Letroy Guion have reached an agreement on a 1-year deal, per a source. Expected to be signed by tomorrow.

Of course, one has to consider that Guion could still face a possible suspension by the NFL after his recent arrest in Florida on gun and drug charges. Guion paid a fine and took a plea deal. As a first time offender, the charges were dropped and will not cause Guion to have a criminal record.
A few hrs later, NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport tweeted the news about Raji:
Both items are good news for the Packers’ defense, which had taken a hit this off-season with the departure of several starters.
Here’s hoping we see a rejuvenated and motivated Raji manning the nose tackle spot with Guion spelling him at times while also getting snaps elsewhere along the defensive line. Combined with Mike Daniels and Datone Jones, these are the four players who will be getting most of the snaps at DL for the Packers this season. Mike Pennel, Josh Boyd and Khyri Thornton (remember him?) will be in a battle for the fifth DL spot.
