The Green Bay Packers are expected to sever ties with inside linebacker Desmond Bishop today.
“So much fun, so many memories & friendships forged in Green Bay. Ups & downs, wins & losses! Even a XLV championship. Forever grateful #Pack,” Bishop wrote on his Twitter account.
Bishop missed all last season after suffering a ruptured hamstring tendon during preseason.
Bishop’s base salary of $3.464 million for this season made him expendable after the team invested in Brad Jones this offseason. Bishop emerged as a starter in 2010 and was one of the best defensive players on the team in 2011 when he had 115 tackles and five sacks.
