How good has Desmond Bishop been this season? The Green Bay Packers linebacker didn’t take over as a starter until week 5 when Nick Barnett was lost for the season with a wrist injury, yet he still finished the regular season second on the team with 121 tackles (82 solo) and he added 3 sacks. He also returned an interception for a touchdown.
Bishop gets a 4-year deal worth $19-million, which keeps him in a Packers uniform through the 2014 season. It took Bishop awhile, but once he finally got an extended opportunity, he didn’t disappoint.
It took Bishop awhile, but the 6th round pick out of California said it was just a matter of time.
