Green Bay --- The Packers have informed Desmond Bishop that they will release the inside linebacker today, a source said.


Desmond Bishop just tweeted: "So much fun, so many memories & friendships forged in Green Bay. Ups & downs, wins & losses! Even a XLV championship. Forever grateful #Pack"

Last week, word out of Green Bay was that the Packers were going to release linebacker Desmond Bishop if they were unable to work out a restructured contract or trade that would bring them something back in return. The Packers have struck out on both fronts and Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports

It really is a shame. I know it is a more what have you done for me lately league and we are paying others in the LB core a lot already, but I was really hoping a deal could be worked. I really like Bishop and his intensity. I do worry about lingering injuries though and I think that was just too much of a risk considering the money and term length he was desiring. Still I would rather have him in our LB core than Brad Jones...

Yeah, it's a damn shame. I was more upset about it when the news of it "probably" happening came out, but considering the injury thing and the money thing, it's probably for the best. Manning and maybe Mulumba better come through, because a steady diet of Hawk and B. Jones will starve the team for good D.

The first signs of trouble emerged last week and now the Green Bay Packers have made it official. The Packers today announced that they have released LB Desmond Bishop roughly a week after speculation began about his future with the team.   Bishop missed all of the 2012 season with a torn hamstring and many have [...]

Linebacker Desmond Bishop is officially a free agent. The Packers have announced that Bishop has been released, confirming the report from Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel earlier on Monday and completing a slow march toward a breakup with Bishop that began when the team shopped him in trade talks before the draft. Bishop...


“It’s not necessarily over,” Bishop said. “There’s an outside chance that I could still be a Packer. So we still have a good relationship. … If I don’t get the right compensation, I’d rather be in a familiar place.”

Just heard about this. It sounds like they departed on good terms. He apparently wasn't willing to take a paycut...at least not yet. I'm thinking that the Packers are still leery of the injury.

Bishop is 28 so he's past his prime and coming off a bad hamstring injury. I thought Tommie Harris was going to be a monster then he had a bad hamstring injury.

Good Point with the Tommie Harris reference. Hopefully other teams will be just as leery as the Packers, and Bishop will take a Hawk-like deal. I'm not holding my breath, though. Probably somebody will pay what he wants.
