Report: Vikings sign linebacker Desmond Bishop to one-year deal


Another ex-Packer is heading to Winter Park.

Free agent linebacker Desmond Bishop, released by Green Bay earlier this month, has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Vikings.

According to KFAN's A.J. Mansour, the price tag is an estimated $1.5 million.

The question now going into training camp is which position Bishop will play.

ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert speculates that Bishop could be used at outside linebacker. It would be an interesting move considering he was at his best as an inside linebacker in Green Bay. If he plays on the outside, the middle linebacker job would be Erin Henderson's to lose.

Judd Zulgad, however, writes that Bishop will likely be tested as an outside and inside linebacker during training camp.

Bishop, who also visited the Kansas City Chiefs last week, also drew interest from the Jaguars, Giants and 49ers, according to NBCSports.com.
