Packers Daily Links: Bishop to Visit Vikings Tuesday

News coming in the wake of Desmond Bishop's release by the Green Bay Packers on Monday is that other teams are interested in the linebacker coming off a torn hamstring and tendon last season. "In a phone interview after his release was announced by the team, Bishop said the Packers never talked with him about the idea of returning under a restructured contract, and that he will visit the team’s NFC North division rival, the Minnesota Vikings, on Tuesday," reports Jason Wilde of "Because he's a vested veteran, Bishop is not subject to the waiver wire and can sign with any team immediately." It's interesting to think that Bishop could possibly be joining Greg Jennings as the latest member of the Packers to join the Vikings, a list that also includes notable players such as Brett Favre, Darren Sharper and Ryan Longwell too. The rivalry will only grow if that's the case.

More on Desmond Bishop visiting the Vikings comes from the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Fox Sports Wisconsin, Packer Report,,, Fox 11 and in the Twin Cities.

Arrowhead Pride speculates if Desmond Bishop could be a target of the Kansas City Chiefs where there's the John Dorsey connection. has a pair of blog posts on the financial considerations that led to Bishop's release and more on his health concerns.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers gave a wide-ranging exclusive interview to Jason Wilde of, published on Monday. Rodgers talks about Brett Favre, his newly-signed contract, his friend Ryan Braun and plenty of other topics, among them, Greg Jennings and some back-and-forth banter. "I think sometimes, as I’ve found out, humor doesn’t always come through a text message or a Tweet or an interview at times," Rodgers is quoted as saying. "I think it’s hard, unless somebody puts a note in there about it being said in a joking way, it’s hard to have humor come through a story. I have a lot of respect for Greg, and we had a lot of great times together, made a lot of plays. He had three really huge catches in the Super Bowl and a lot of wins here. So I know there’s a lot of mutual respect and I don’t take an umbrage from anything he said." Read the entire interview. Rodgers addresses almost everything and anything you could possibly desire.

As a former teammate to Donald Driver and a guy that would defend him in practice, Davon House commented to JSOnline that Driver still has gas left in his tank. "Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah," House is quoted as saying by reporter Tyler Dunne. "Money isn’t an issue with him anymore. He probably would rather play more than just sit around and get two snaps here and there." Driver says he'll only play for the Packers, but it will be interesting to see if any other NFL team could possibly coax him out of retirement.

Absolutely shocked that the Queens would show interest in an ex-Packer. This just doesn't seem like them.

Packer talent > Viking talent

What a shock!

I believe we've reached a point that there's no point in informing that an ex-Packer is visiting the Vikings. We all just assume that's going to happen.

Let me know if/when he signs.
