Report: Packers make linebacker Desmond Bishop available in trade
Could more changes be coming to the Packers’ linebacking corps?
According to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network and NFL.com (via his colleague, Ian Rapoport), the Packers are willing to trade inside linebacker Desmond Bishop.
The 28-year-old Bishop notched a career-best 115 tackles and five sacks in 13 games in 2011, but he missed the 2012 campaign with a hamstring injury.
Bishop, per Rotoworld figures, is slated to make about $3.46 million in 2013 and $3.52 million in 2014.
Earlier this week, the Packers waived D.J. Smith, their Week One starting middle linebacker a season ago. Smith, who is recovering from an October ACL tear, signed with San Diego the next day.
