Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion was suspended for the first three games in 2015, according to multiple reports.

He plans to appeal immediately, ESPN Milwaukee reported.

Guion signed a one-year deal worth up to $2.75 million in March but is expected to make neary $500,000 less with the loss of three game checks and a roster bonus for each game.

Guion was arrested on felony charges that include possession of 357 grams of marijuana and possession of a firearm. He entered a no-contest plea in the case and paid a $5,000 fine.

Last season, Guion started all 16 regular-season games and two playoff games for the Packers. He had a career-best 62 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks during the regular season and added 12 tackles and a half-sack in the postseason.

Before coming to Green Bay, Guion spent six seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, who drafted him in the fifth round in 2008. In 84 regular-season games and 47 starts with the two teams, he has totaled 191 tackles, 8 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
