Green Bay --- It appears the Green Bay Packers won't be giving Desmond Bishop a chance to pursue that goal written in his notebook after all.

whoa nellie.
I knew something was brewing when the Packers gave Jones the big contract but Bishop when healthy was such a big time player.

What I will be most sorry about is that he won't make it to the White House with the Packers, thus ever. (Remember he discovered that he left his ID back on the plane when the bus got to the WH.)

Bishop always seemed slow/flat-footed to me. He was a good tackler but slow. Hawk is kind of the same way. Jones seems quicker and better suited for a sideline-to-sideline role. Still, I'm curious why we want to rid ourselves of him.

EDIT: This could also mean the coaches really like one of the younger guys on the roster. Say a Terrell Manning.

They tried to trade him during the draft.

He's a solid thumper, but not much in pass defense. It might even be more that they're not convinced he can come back from this injury.

Hawk's nothing special in coverage himself, but I think he's at least a little faster. With Hawk it's more like he's uncoordinated playing the ball in the air.

Hawk's also on the field every Sunday. (Not to jinx him of course.)

damn damn damn - I really hate this. Bishop is head and shoulders better than Brad Jones and a good deal better than Hawk also. I hope they can work out something similar to what they got Hawk to settle for.

If the reports are true, another member of the Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl XLV-winning team is on his way out of Titletown. Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee tweeted Tuesday evening that, barring a trade or a restructured deal, that the Packers will likely be parting ways with ILB Desmond Bishop.  It’s not clear what [...]

It all depends on which Bishop we are talking about. Pre injury he was great. Post injury we don't know. He doesn't seem to be recovering quickly enough based on these reports, and that can easily spell his release.

Without Desmond Bishop, who the hell is going to overcome the deficiencies of A.J. Hawk?

Bishop is easily the most physical defensive player the Packers have. Releasing him would be foolish. Trading him ... that's a different story.
