Former Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop will stay inside the NFC North, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings, per ProFootballTalk.

Bishop was plagued by a hamstring injury during the 2012 season, and the Packers released him last week. A number of teams had interest in him, but he apparently has decided to join one of the Pack's primary rivals by heading across the state line and going to Minnesota.

Bishop should compete for a starting role with the Vikings, who have been looking to shore up their linebacking corps.
