Just got off the phone with @Desbishop55. He will visit the #Vikings tomorrow.

Sign him to add to our LB core.

Wonder how pissed Henderson is going to be when he hears about this one...

Let him battle it out with the rookies for the will spot. 3-4 inside linebacker doesn't necessarily translate to 4-3 imo, and I think he might be too light in the loafers to play in that spot anyways.

The Packers apparently lit a fire under Desmond Bishop (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4403/desmond-bishop) with his release.And they may have to put it out twice a year.
Bishop told ESPNWisconsin.com’s Jason Wilde that being released today will serve as motivation, something a former sixth-rounder who worked his way into a starting job never needed.

With the talk of Cole or Bishop playing MLB, perhaps the Henderson plan really isn't going well according to plan.

Most interesting thing on his wiki page.

During the Packers visit to the White House, Bishop was denied entrance by White House officials after he left his I.D. on the team plane.

No deal appeared imminent hours after free-agent linebacker Desmond Bishop worked out for Minnesota Vikings officials on Wednesday.

"Good workout, and we'll see," defensive coordinator Alan Williams said after the team's minicamp practice. Bishop, 28, also underwent a physical on Wednesday, two days after the Green Bay Packers released him. He missed last season with a torn hamstring.

According to reports, Bishop was scheduled to visit Kansas City on Thursday and also has drawn interest from Jacksonville.

If Spielman let him walk after the visit the odds are very low that he will sign here.

ESPN is reporting that the Vikings and Bishop have reached an agreement.
