07:24 PM ET 06.17 | Desmond Bishop admits himself he saw "the writing on the wall." On Monday, it became official. The Green Bay Packers released the inside linebacker who two seasons ago was one of their best defensive players. When the Packers decided to re-sign Brad Jones and restructure A.J. Hawk???s contract, Bishop's future with the Packers was in question. On Monday, the Packers released Bishop, whose salary was $3.464 million this year. Bishop said he doesn't necessarily blame the Packers. He was the one coming off a torn hamstring tendon. So in March, Green Bay covered its bases by re-signing Jones to a three-year, $11.75 million deal and also keeping Hawk at a reduced salary. Hawk is set to make $10.6 million the next three years. ???It???s a smart thing to do," Bishop said. "It???s understandable.???
