Story By Joe Dufek

- The Packers added more depth to their defensive line. Today they signed DT Letroy Guion from the Vikings. Guion has played in 68 games with 31 starts. His career stats include 129 tackles, five sacks, and two fumble recoveries.

The Packers also lost a key offensive weapon. Free agent wide receiver James Jones signed a 3-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. According to an ESPN report - the deal is worth $11.3-million bucks.

Jones went to high school in San Jose. He also played collegiately for San Jose State before being selected by the Packers in the 2007 NFL Draft.


Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was in the Packers front office for five seasons (2007-11) while Jones was in Green Bay.

Jones had a career-high 817 yard receiving last year.
