After Desmond Bishop himself acknowledged that he would be visiting the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, he’s making his way Wednesday to Kansas City for a meeting with the Chiefs.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network…

For what it’s worth, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier declined to confirm Bishop’s visit, telling the Associated Press and other reporters, “I wouldn’t want to verify any reports.”
Regardless, the visit more than likely took place, Frazier just doesn’t feel it’s in his or the team’s best interests in commenting on it.
As happens so frequently when it comes to free agents, a situation could arise where the Vikings don’t allow Bishop to leave Minnesota.
It makes sense that Bishop would want to remain in the NFC North where he would be seeing familiar opponents twice a year, including the Packers. But of course, money will be the determining factor.
If Rapoport’s report is accurate, there shouldn’t be much news on the Bishop front on Wednesday as it’s only a travel day for him. The meeting itself with the Chiefs isn’t scheduled until Thursday.
Elsewhere in items related to the Packers, linebacker A.J. Hawk continues taking part in the NFL’s Broadcast Boot Camp where he’s learning the business of football broadcasting. The program lasts through Thursday at NFL Films headquarters in Mt. Laurel, N.J.
Several Packers-related youth camps are also in the midst of their programs.
The Gilbert Brown All Star Football Camp is taking place at West Bend High School in West Bend, Wis. and the official youth football camps of the Green Bay Packers have two camps ongoing in both Madison and Mequon, Wis. this week.
