07:01 AM ET 06.18 | At the very least, Desmond Bishop didn't have to wait very long or go very far for his next chance. [Bishop], who was released by the Green Bay Packers on Monday, told ESPN Wisconsin that he will visit the Vikings on Tuesday. An NFL source told 1500 ESPN that Bishop actually will workout for the Vikings on Wednesday. The Vikings lost starting middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley to Arizona in free agency and have been using Erin Henderson in the middle during Organized Team Activities. ... Bishop's release did not come as a surprise. There were reports last week that the Packers wanted to either restructure the 28-year-old's contract or they would release him. Green Bay also explored the option of trying to trade Bishop.

Seems like the old "black and blue" division likes to swap players a lot these days.

The Vikings, like Kanye West, seems to like sloppy seconds.

I don't know. Bishop was a solid player but I don't think the Packers would have let him go if they didn't have someone they felt could replace him.

We shall see how Brad Jones does, they re-signed him for 4 years @ $3.75 million per season.

What is it with the Vikings. Do the Packers need a restraining order.

June 18, 2013  11:15 AM ET

Thompson will have a lot of splaining to do if Bishop picks up where he left off before his injury.

June 18, 2013  11:25 AM ET

THIS IS SHOCKING. SHOCKING I TELL YOU! The Vikings, going after a former PACKER!? This never happens. I mean, only...

Longwell
Sharper
Ferguson
Favre
Attempted James Jones
Attempted Tori Gurley
Attempted Donald Driver
Greg Jennings
Courting Dez Bishop...

Compare that to the number of ex Vikings the Packers have signed in the same time span as those players mentioned above.....ZERO.

That said, Im PISSED we cut Bishop. He was the only MLB we had that made palys. Hawk is an absolute turd, Brad Jones in undersized.

There's no swapping. Just them taking.

I agree. Bishop was the only guy on our defense that got any pressure on a quarterback 2 years ago. I really dont like this move.
