The Minnesota Vikings and linebacker Desmond Bishop agreed to a one-year deal on Monday, reports NFL.com.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bishop was released by the Green Bay Packers last week after missing all of last season with a ruptured hamstring tendon suffered in the Aug. 9 preseason opener at San Diego and became expendable when the team decided to re-sign Brad Jones and restructure A.J. Hawk’s deal — both at starter’s money.

Bishop had not participated in any of the team’s organized team activity practices this offseason.

Bishop had 115 tackles, five sacks, and two forced fumbles in 13 starts in 2011.

He was set to make $3.464 million this season after signing a four-year, $19 million extension in January 2011.

Always a chuckle listen to Wisconsin fans make up excuses or whine about losing players to their rivals.  Their tears are delicious.  Welcome to Mr. Bishop....it shouldn't take long for the stench of GB to wear off so you can enjoy living in a far better city than crap-hole Green Bay.  :)  SKOL VIKINGS!!!

 A couple of questions.  Who is the Super Bowl Trophy named after, and how many currently reside in Minnesota's trophy case?
