Railbird Central Podcast: Connecting the Dots on Desmond Bishop

The news of the Packers potentially releasing linebacker Desmond Bishop came as unexpected on Tuesday. The word coming from the Packers is that it's "numbers related," but I'm not buying it. In my opinion, the Packers have determined Bishop is not going to be the same player following his hamstring injury. But regardless, the Packers are rolling with Brad Jones and A.J.

Good podcast Brian! I also believe it's mainly about the wicked injury Desmond had. I'm not sure if it's the exact same injury Brian D'Onifrio had and his was a career ender. Other things you mentioned also facter but not nearly as much.

It was Mark D'Onofrio. He's now Defensive Coordinator for Univ of Miami.

This "numbers game" talk makes me suspect the Packers are hoping to get some value back in trade or when he is released that the Vikings or Bears will throw him a bigger contract that his health calls for.

Why wouldn't they keep him for the pre-season? It would cost them nothing unless he got injured. This tells me that their doctors are telling them he's finished. Either that or Thompson is nuts.

This is an injury that usually ends careers. The muscle tore away from the bone. The synthetic attachment is fine for a normal life, but it isn't strong enough to last from the rigors of playing football. If he keeps playing, its only a matter of time before it tears away again.
