Packers sign free agent, lose free agent

DL Guion comes to Green Bay, WR Jones leaves

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers have signed ex-Vikings tackle Letroy Guion to a one-year deal in another move to beef up the defensive line.

Monday's free-agent signing comes less than a week after Green Bay made a splash by adding end Julius Peppers from another NFC North rival, the Chicago Bears.

A person familiar with Guion's deal said the contract was worth up to $1 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms were not released.

Guion was drafted by Minnesota in the fifth round in 2008 out of Florida State. He has 90 tackles and five sacks in 68 career games, including 31 starts.

The Packers also have re-signed B.J. Raji, while fellow linemen Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly remain free agents.

Wide receiver James Jones won't return to Green Bay.  He's agreed to a three-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Jones had career highs with 59 receptions and 817 yards for the Packers last season. Two years ago, Jones led the NFL with 14 touchdown receptions.
