Packers could part with Bishop

The Green Bay Packers could be moving on without linebacker Desmond Bishop.

The story was first reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and says Bishop will be released unless the two sides are able to restructure his deal or pull off a trade.  Bishop is set to make more than $3.4-million this season, part of the four-year, $19-million deal he signed in January 2011.

Bishop told the JS that he is “completely” healthy and added that there’s still a possibility he could be back with the Packers.

Bishop tore his right hamstring before the start of last season and missed the entire season.  Brad Jones took over and was later re-signed at $11.75 million over three years.  A.J. Hawk also accepted a pay cut and is set to make $10.6-million over the next three years.

Bishop said he’ll be ready to participate by training camp.  We’ll see if that will be with the Packers or another NFL team.

  1. At lease give him a chance to prove himself one my favorite player

  2. Bill Scott says:

    I agree. He’s the physical player that the Packers defense needs to set the tone for the rest.
