Here’s one from the WTF files. The Green Bay Packers are reportedly shopping inside linebacker Desmond Bishop.

I’m not even sure what to say about this, other than hopefully the Packers can’t find a trade partner. Bishop is coming off a season where he spent all year on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, but he’s still the Packers best inside linebacker.
Granted, they’ve got a lot of bodies at the position, but Bishop is the only true playmaker of the group.
The Packers released D.J. Smith earlier this week in another head-scratching move. If they trade Bishop, we’ll likely be forced to spend another year bitching about A.J. Hawk getting run over and pushed around.
As it stands, Hawk seems likely to be a backup behind Bishop and Brad Jones.
