No way! It doesn't make any sense to trade your best Inside Linebacker.

News out of Green Bay, where the Packers are actively shopping LB Desmond Bishop, per @MoveTheSticks

According to Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network, the Green Bay Packers are actively shopping inside linebacker Desmond Bishop around the league.

This is really surprising given that the Packers could actually use some at the position and Bishop has been their best inside linebacker in the past few years.

He did suffer a bad hamstring injury during the preseason last year, so there could be some concerns relating his recovery.

Bishop, 28, signed a four-year deal worth $19.05 million back in 2011 and is under contract for a very reasonable $3.464 million this season.

We’ll have to see if anything comes of this.

While I don't think Desmond is going to be our starter this year. He doesn't have the speed or size I think the team wants. I don't really see this.

How about all our remaining tradeable picks, and Desmond for Joe Thomas.

Could more changes be coming to the Packers' linebacking corps? According to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network and NFL.com (via his colleague, Ian Rapoport), the Packers are willing to trade inside linebacker Desmond Bishop. The 28-year-old Bishop notched a career-best 115 tackles and five sacks in 13 games in 2011, but he missed the 2012 campaign

No real surprise here that the trade "talk" has motivated Desmond Bishop.

PFT: Bishop says that trade talk motivates him.

Desmond Bishop wrote:
Oh yeah, definitely. I get so much motivation from so much different stuff. I’m ready to go.



I kinda thought the whole Bishop and James Starks trade talk was nothing more than an attempt to kick both in the rear and if someone came knocking with a good deal ... let it happen. Basically, it's a win-win for the Packers. A, motivate your players and if they lack motivation, they are not worth their roster spot, B, get value for players who are coming off an injury.

They have a good bit of money locked up with the ILB position. I'm not surprised they're trying to reduce it some. Though I don't like the idea of getting rid of one of them but I can understand why.

I heard a rumor that Manning looked surprisingly good for a rookie last year and MIGHT be able to step up if needed to start, and the Packers do believe in their young guys.

I also think Capers changed up the defense a bit (like Mike McCarthy said they were), seem like the DL was asked to protect the LBers more which freed up the ILBers to go to action more using their speed and quickness which helped Hawk and Jones. Bishop doesn't have a lot of speed so I wonder if they feel he might be better suited for the older defense.

Ether way he's coming off an injury, and they're paying 3 guys starter money with only 2 starter spots, it wouldn't be surprising. Though it will be interesting to see if they wait until the pads come on, where Bishop should look better in than just shorts.

I still don't know why they've never given Bishop a shot outside. His lack of coverage skills maybe.

In the 4-3 it would be because of his lack of speed. In the 3-4, my first answer would be lack of pass rush (which is my standard answer for not trying a 3-4 ILB at 4-3 OLB... but Bishop is surprisingly good at shedding OL and he's physical with some good coaching up that might be interesting to see if he could beat OTs off the edge or not. I wouldn't be against trying it in practice and seeing how he does.
