It’s a move that is becoming all too familiar for Packers fans.  Once a players time is done in Green Bay,  their eyes turn to the Minnesota Vikings.  Add Desmond Bishop to that list.

After being released by the Packers last Monday, Bishop spent rest of the week visiting possible destinations for 2013.  Over the weekend, Bishop narrowed his list to the Vikings, the New York Giants, and the Kansas City Chiefs.  Monday, news broke the Vikings would be the choice.

Bishop joins a list of Packers to make the trip west that includes big names like Brett Favre, Greg Jennings, Ryan Longwell and Darren Sharper, and to a lesser extent, Robert Ferguson and Javon Walker.

The deal for Bishop is believed to be for 1-year and roughly $1.35 million.
