GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Another former Green Bay Packer will be wearing the purple and gold next season, as linebacker Desmond Bishop has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings.
Bishops agent, Blake Baratz, posted a tweet Monday afternoon announcing the news.
Released by the Packers last week, Bishops first free-agent visit was with the Vikings. Though Bishop had interest from other teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Giants, the 28-year-old decided to stay within the NFC North and sign with Minnesota.
"In my heart, I think I'll always be a Packer, even if I never play for the Packers again," Bishop told FOXSportsWisconsin.com last week. "Right now, it's a little difficult, it's a little weird thinking about dressing up in a different uniform. But, it is what it is."
