Vikings Sign Linebacker

 The Vikings have signed free agent linebacker Desmond Bishop to a one-year contract, according to the “Minneapolis Star Tribune.”  Bishop was released by the Green Bay Packers last week.  He missed all of last year with a hamstring injury after posting back-to-back 100-tackle seasons.  The 28-year-old spent his first six years with the Packers, who drafted him in the sixth round in 2007 out of California.
