Minutes before the NFL free agency opened Tuesday afternoon, the Minnesota Vikings re-signed defensive lineman Letroy Guion to a three-year deal, according to Aaron Wilson on Twitter.
Guion, 24, has played all three of his NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, racking up 21 tackles last season in a back up role to Kevin Williams. He played in all 16 games last season and the Vikings are enamored with his potential.
Minnesota has a grand total of 17 players from last season's team that became unrestricted free agents at 4 p.m. The biggest needs for the Vikings in free agency and the draft appear to be at the wide receiver position and throughout the secondary. Minnesota finished a disappointing 3-13 last season.
