Desmond Bishop has signed for the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year deal.
The linebacker had been a free agent following his release from the Green Bay Packers for less than a week before the Vikings decided to make a move for him.
Bishop becomes the latest in a long-line of players who have formerly represented the Packers to make the move to the Minnesota Vikings.
The 28-year-old will be hoping that this move can help him return to his best form, too. He missed all of last season with a torn hamstring, but is expected to be a regular starter for the Vikings, if he can stay fit.
Bishop is confident that he can and he told The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he has fully recovered from his injury: “It’s a serious injury, but I definitely hit all the points I was supposed to hit as far as getting healthy.
The tear is 100%. I can do anything and everything.”
If true he will be a valuable addition to the Viking’s squad, having made 90 tackles and five sacks during the 2011-2012 season when he was last fully-fit.
