The topic of the week, which happens be literally the only topic of the week, is the decision of linebacker Desmond Bishop to choose the Vikings over multiple other offers. Details of his deal have been revealed and it appears Rick Spielman signed a high-upside player to a very low-risk one year contract. Bishop’s deal is reportedly worth up to $1.35 million, with playing time incentives built in, which is a bargain by just about anyone’s standards. Even Erin Henderson, who Bishop is expected to force back to the weak side position, will make more money this season than Bishop.
So, despite the lack of experience in a 4-3 defense and his recent injury woes, I can’t see why anyone would have any issue with this signing. Some might be expecting far too much from our new linebacker, but I just fail to see the downside.
