The Green Bay Packers rolled the dice when they released linebacker Desmond Bishop and it could backfire twice if he proves to be fully recovered with the Minnesota Vikings. The team felt Bishop was expendable after a severe hamstring injury, but economics surely played a large role in the decision. So now, this decision might backfire. Bishop signed a one-year; prove he’s still got it deal with a direct threat to the Packers in the NFC North. If he slides into Minnesota’s starting line-up, the Packers may have made a major mistake. According to Tyler Dunne of JSOnline, the team’s move to let Bishop go is a risk or reward gamble that could come back to haunt them. Dunne writes: Under Thompson, Green Bay has been a team that identifies and values so-called “core players.” On offense, starters such as T.J.

Kyle Rudolph Looks To Become Elite Tight End in 2013

Obviously, a brilliant Pro Bowl appearance is not the best measure of future success, but Kyle Rudolph‘s five receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown en route to the MVP honors gave a glimpse into his potential.

DE Jared Allen is 'all systems go' for training camp: ‘I’m ready to rock and roll’

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen is all systems go for the first day of training camp; however, he’s not exactly happy about it.

The Unusual Nature of Jared Allen’s Contract Year

In today’s NFL it is rare to see a player play out the length of a big-money contract.
