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.
Good for him… Buyer beware.
Honestly, the fact that Minnesota didn’t sign him with the crap they have in the middle makes me think that there is something seriously wrong with that hammy, or he’s asking for too much money. If he isn’t getting the offer he wants he may just come back to the packers on a team-friendly deal.
I also love Des as a player, so maybe i’m just blowing hope out my ass.
You’re quite talented, the only thing that comes out of my ass is noxious gas and unwanted refuse.
As if there is any doubt. Minny-sotah is where jilted Packers’ careers go to die.
Please Chiefs. Please. I just dont wanna hear “we got another one!!!” from the purple pricks
To be honest. He will go with the chiefs. They have the greater need. And if the vikings were that blown away. They never would of let him leave the building without a deal.
Chiefs run a 3-4, might be a better fit. that is if he isn’t looking to “stick it to Ted Thompson”, of course………
Coverage was never his strong suit, he can go to the queens. I’d actually like to see him try to run with Finley or Cobb. Advantage: GREEN BAY PACKERS.
Wow, I found the Hater Packer Press…talk about garbage articles…Percy Harvin will Ruin the Vikings?, Ponder will be benched for Cassell? Wow, what is this? Jeannie Dixon in GB? This is laughable and desperate…lol
He only says what we’re all thinking. No need to be PC about it.
Both times I banged your Mom when she was desperate for $5 in crack money, she said she always thought you’d turn out to be a dick.
She was right.
By the way, I’m an HIV positive, blind, syphilitic amputee and she said that along with the Vikings, I was the best thing that ever came along in her life.
Don’t come on here slinging your weak shit, jerkoff.
‘Ballslerper’… Suck it!
Buttseeker, please go back to the donkey show from whence you came.
Goodbye douche..go back to your purple puke site..you and the rest of you purple homers can spell Aarons name wrong all you want..hes still better than any qb youve had in the last 20 years
As Rodgers is probably the best quarterback we have ever had, he is sure as shit better than any quarterback the Viking have ever had. That includes Fran Tarkenton, a Viking I actually like and respect.
It would be interesting to see how much money another team is willing to offer.
The Packers obviously didn’t think Bishop was worth $3.5 million a season. So, we’ll see if anyone out there disagrees.
The fact he left without a contract suggests he has issue with Hammy, no doubt. I heard Bishop on XM-Radio and it almost seemed he was already home sick for the Packers. Ted could get him back for much cheaper if he wanted. The fact we didn’t even do that, it’s GOT to medical.
