Letroy Guion … is he worth nearly $3 million per-year?

Letroy Guion had his best season as a pro with 62 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2014, but his ranking as a defensive tackle doesn’t indicate that he is worthy of a pay raise, let alone a multi-year contract extension.

With 633 snaps in 2014, ranked Guion as the sixty-first best defensive tackle in the NFL out of the 81 defensive tackles ranked.

Overall, PFF had Guion’s season evaluation at -10.1 and -5.2 against the run.

Guion’s rating as a pass rusher was +2.0, so he was a positive element in that department while providing a push up the middle on passing downs.

But when you look at his game-by-game statistics, you can see an up and down performance that wasn’t eye-popping when he proved effective and certainly not very impressive when his numbers and ratings dipped.

In weeks 1-4, his ratings were -1.8, -2.0, -0.3 and -1.1; in weeks 4-6 he had his best outings, ranking +1.7, +2.0 and +2.0.

However, over the course of the remainder of the season, his ranking hovered just below the 0.0 mark (which is average) with his only positive rating coming in week 13 when he posted a +0.4 rating.

His playoff performances is where his ratings dropped precipitously as he posted a -2.5 against the Dallas Cowboys and a -2.4 against the Seattle Seahawks in the championship game.

WellTed Thompson and Mike McCarthy provided their feelings about Guion loud and clear today – at least for one more season.

So, what about B.J. Raji?
