Friday Morning, Tom Pelissero tweeted out the details of Desmond Bishop's contract with the Minnesota Vikings.
Desmond Bishop got a minimum base salary of $750,000 on his deal with #Vikings, of which $50,000 is fully guaranteed, source said. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 28, 2013
Bishop's deal maxes out at $1.35M, including $100K in roster bonuses, $500K in playtime incentives, source said. #Vikings. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 28, 2013
With this structure, the Vikings made it less costly for themselves if they should choose to release Bishop.
Welcome to the new girl, Jayme Snowden!
Did Jayme Joyers get married?
Boy, that is a zero of a contract. Bishop might not even make the roster.
Yeah, it took me a while to figure out she got married and didn't change her username as a sign of solidarity or something with Edward Snowden.
Married. Although I'm sure changing my name to Snowden at this time wasn't the best way to stay under the legal radar.
Ha! Yeah, you're almost definitely on some lists now.
Congratulations! We might not even have to read dumb comments to you from drunk guys next fall.
Gezz, that's quite a cut from 3.5, but hey, least he plays against the best, A-Rod. as he says!
He's gotta be turning Purple, Purple?
Would Bishop have taken this deal to stay with the Pack? I don't think so. He's getting next to nothing if he doesn't pan out. The deal reflects what an extremely high injury risk he has become. Sad to say, the odds are really against him.
Story time: the week of the Packers vs viqueens game I received my autographed bishop picture. It was cheap because he just got bumped up from special teams. That game he picked off Favre and in doing so helped packer nation get some pride back. You will be missed bish, but f you as long as your a queen. Enjoy grown men dressing in blonde wigs and purple clothes cheering you on! :)
