Here's to hoping Desmond Bishop ends up in KC or Oakland


Green Bay Packers fans are sick and tired of hearing about their former players – including someone like Desmond Bishop – gravitating toward the Minnesota Vikings, for one reason or another.

Darren Sharper, Ryan Longwell, Brett Favre, Greg Jennings – I need not go on.

And it continues with Bishop. Even before the ink on his release papers had been signed, the announcement came over Twitter that Bishop was going to pay a visit. Really?

Hey, Bish! There are 30 other teams out there who might be interested in your services. But no, the first team named has got to be the Vikings. Rather sickening, I’d say.

It seems like if the Packers throw their dirty underwear into the dumpster out back the dogs of Minnesota are out there sniffing around.

That’s why I was relieved today to hear that the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs have expressed an interest in bringing Bishop in for a tryout.

Today, I was asked to provide some comments about Bishop from our sister site, Basically what I told them was that nobody is really sure why the Packers released Bishop. It could have been health issues. It could have been money issues – nobody is for certain.

There’s no question in my mind that Bishop was one of the Packers best defenders in 2010 and 2011. His injury last year certainly had an impact on his release, But in my mind he still has at least a couple of more years in him.

Just not in Minnesota. KC or Oakland? OK.

Here is a link over to – check it out. It’s the oldest and most awesome site in the entire network.

In the meantime, let’s just keep Bishop out of the NFC North.
