Earlier today we had a report that said linebacker Desmond Bishop, whom was released by the Green Bay Packers, would visit the Minnesota Vikings. Now we have confirmation. And there it is. RT @jasonjwilde Just got off the phone with @Desbishop55. He will visit the #Vikings tomorrow. — Seth Kaplan (@Seth_Kaplan) June 17, 2013 As updated in the link, Bishop will not have to go through waivers as he has accrued more than the four seasons necessary to skip waivers. Bishop is a free agent and it looks like the first team will he will visit will be the team he has been lining up across from twice a year since he was drafted by the Packers in 2007.  First Brett Favre, Greg Jennings, and now Bishop. Good thing Aaron Rodgers doesn’t become a free agent anytime soon.   Need NFL Tickets? The post Report: Desmond Bishop will visit the Minnesota Vikings appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
