Vikings Reach Deal with Former Packer Linebacker Bishop
After being released by the Green Bay Packers last Monday, and visiting both Kansas City and Minnesota, linebacker Desmond Bishop has reportedly reached a deal with the Vikings according to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert. Bishop missed all of last season with a torn hamstring.
Assuming his health is good, Bishop should earn a spot as one of Minnesota’s starting linebackers this season. There has been much speculation as to whether he would play in the middle of the defense where Erin Henderson has been practicing this spring, or if Henderson will handle the middle duties, with Bishop moving to the outside.
