It really is a shame. I know it is a more what have you done for me lately league and we are paying others in the LB core a lot already, but I was really hoping a deal could be worked. I really like Bishop and his intensity. I do worry about lingering injuries though and I think that was just too much of a risk considering the money and term length he was desiring. Still I would rather have him in our LB core than Brad Jones...

Yeah, it's a damn shame. I was more upset about it when the news of it "probably" happening came out, but considering the injury thing and the money thing, it's probably for the best. Manning and maybe Mulumba better come through, because a steady diet of Hawk and B. Jones will starve the team for good D.

“It’s not necessarily over,” Bishop said. “There’s an outside chance that I could still be a Packer. So we still have a good relationship. … If I don’t get the right compensation, I’d rather be in a familiar place.”

Just heard about this. It sounds like they departed on good terms. He apparently wasn't willing to take a paycut...at least not yet. I'm thinking that the Packers are still leery of the injury.

Bishop is 28 so he's past his prime and coming off a bad hamstring injury. I thought Tommie Harris was going to be a monster then he had a bad hamstring injury.

Good Point with the Tommie Harris reference. Hopefully other teams will be just as leery as the Packers, and Bishop will take a Hawk-like deal. I'm not holding my breath, though. Probably somebody will pay what he wants.

I don't like it, but our defense was awful, so many must pay. They played poorly, as a unit, for several years. Ted invested a great deal (imo) to get a great unit. He failed to get one. Maybe he can fix it in the 2014 draft. Laughing Maybe our hopes will survive and spring eternal... these are all possibilities...

Maybe I'm right and this model does not work. I don't like getting rid of Bishop. He's the only one I liked out of all those wasted draft picks. Almost incredidible, how bad it has been, at that position...draft-pick-wise...

The pass D was better without him.

Ranked 4th in passer rating allowed last year.

I'm a big Desmond Bishop fan, but from a pure business standpoint, this makes some sense. They are playing the odds on whether or not he can return healthy and as effective as prior to the injury, and as much as I want the old Bish back, I can see how they arrived at this decision.

The guy knows how to play. Tough loss for GB.

"Bishop said in a phone interview that the team never discussed the idea of him taking a pay cut, saying only that they would check back with him down the road if he were released and didn't find work elsewhere. "


I need someone to make sense of this for me. No, we won't offer you a lower deal, but hey if no one else wants you, then we can talk? Is that just an angle to get him on the dirt cheap?
