Report: Packers will release Desmond Bishop

According to ESPNWisconsin.com, the Green Bay Packers are expected to release linebacker Desmond Bishop.

According to an NFL source, barring an unlikely contract restructure or trade, the Packers will be parting ways with Bishop, who missed all of last season with a ruptured hamstring tendon suffered in the Aug. 9 preseason opener at San Diego.

 

Bishop did not participate in any of the team’s organized team activity practices, including Tuesday’s final open practice, or the mandatory minicamp last week. The Packers have three OTA practices remaining but they are all closed to the public and media.
