Free-agent defensive tackle Letroy Guion has visited with the New England Patriots, as first reported by Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Guion was featured as one of the team's "projected targets" in our "free-agent fit" series. He has spent his seven-year career with the Vikings, the past two of which he emerged in a starting role. In those two years, Guion's position coach was Brendan Daly, who is now in his first year on the Patriots' staff.

The 26-year-old Guion entered the NFL as a fifth-round draft choice of the Vikings in 2008 after playing at Florida State. He was released by the Vikings this month, and thus wouldn't count against the compensatory draft pick formula.

The 6-foot-4, 303-pound Guion played nose tackle in the Vikings' scheme last season, although that might not be his best fit in the Patriots' scheme, which is different from what Minnesota ran under former head coach Leslie Frazier.
