The Green Bay Packers have released defensive lineman Letroy Guion.

Guion was arrested on drunk-driving charges in June and also received a four-game suspension without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Guion was arrested in Hawaii, where his breath reportedly smelled of marijuana and his blood alcohol level was.086. He received a three-game penalty in 2015 for his first offense.

Guion played in 44 regular season-games with 35 starts for Green Bay over the last three seasons and appeared in seven postseason contests with five starts. After six seasons with the Vikings, he signed with the Green Bay Packers prior to the 2014 season.

In 2016, he started 15 games for the Green Bay defense and played in 46.6 percent of the snaps in those games as a plug in the middle of their defense. The move makes the Packers even thinner on the defensive line-third-round pick Montravius Adams is out for the season with a left foot injury he suffered on the first day of training camp.

The Packers did not make a corresponding roster move, meaning the roster is now at only 89 players ahead of Thursday night's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
