 width=>>Packers Resign Raji, Guion

The Green Bay Packers re-signed defensive tackles B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion to one-year contracts on Tuesday.

Raji's deal is reportedly worth $3.5 million, while Guion will earn $2.75 million.

Raji missed the entire 2014 season after suffering a biceps injury during preseason, but started 14 or more games in the previous five seasons (2009-13).

Drafted ninth overall by Green Bay in 2009, Raji has compiled 129 tackles and 10 1/2 sacks in 76 career games and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2011.

Guion is currently subject to discipline from the NFL after he was arrested for possession of marijuana and a firearm in February. He reached a plea agreement, which ended with him paying a $5,000 fine and having the charges dropped.

The 27-year-old recorded 32 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games last season, his first with the Packers.

Guion spent his prior six seasons with Minnesota and has totaled 122 tackles and 8 1/2 sacks in 84 career games.

>>Colts Sign WR Brown

The Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday signed free-agent wide receiver Vincent Brown, who spent last season with the Oakland Raiders.

Brown, 26, had 12 receptions for 118 yards in seven games for the Raiders.

A third-round draft pick by San Diego in 2011, Brown appeared in 30 games for the Chargers over two seasons, catching 60 passes for 801 yards and three touchdowns after starring at nearby San Diego State.
