Desmond Bishop Will Choose Between Vikings and Chiefs
UPDATE: There was word late on Thursday that the New York Giants are interested in Desmond Bishop and he apparently hasn’t ruled out the Jaguars, although there’s no word of a visit scheduled. The 49ers also called, but their inside linebacker situation is set and Bishop knows that.
Desmond Bishop should have a new team by the weekend. The former Green Bay Packers linebacker will reportedly choose between the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs.
Bishop concluded a visit with the Vikings on Wednesday and will visit with the Chiefs today.
The Jacksonville Jaguars also expressed interest, but Bishop apparently isn’t interested in them.
The Chiefs make sense because former Packers director of college scouting John Dorsey is the team’s general manager.
Meanwhile, everything apparently went fine in Minnesota.
“Good workout,” Vikings defensive coordinator Alan Williams told reporters. “We’ll see. We’re doing our due diligence in terms of bringing guys in that are free agents. The neat thing is, I don’t have to make those decisions. I just have to coach them once they get here. Coach Leslie Frazier and (general manager) Rick Spielman, they’re the ones that make those hard decisions.”
Bishop missed all of 2012 with a hamstring injury and was scheduled to make $3.464 million with the Packers in 2013. Bishop said he was 100 percent earlier this offseason and his Vikings workout seems to suggest he is.
