Desmond Bishop to sign with Vikings Submitted: 06/24/2013
- Free agent linebacker Desmond Bishop has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings, according to his agent, becoming the latest in a long line of former Green Bay Packers players to sign with their NFC North rival. Terms were not immediately available. The Packers released Bishop last Monday and he began a visit with the Vikings the next day. He also visited the Kansas City Chiefs before making a decision over the weekend. He joins former Packer wide receiver Greg Jennings who signed with the Vikings earlier this off-season. Bishop missed all of last season because of a torn hamstring muscle but, if healthy, could be one of the Vikings' three starting linebackers.
