Free agent linebacker Desmond Bishop has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings, according to his agent, becoming the latest in a long line of former Green Bay Packers players to sign with their NFC North rival.

Terms were not immediately available.

The Packers released Bishop last Monday and he began a visit with the Vikings the next day. He also visited the Kansas City Chiefs before making a decision over the weekend.

Bishop missed all of last season because of a torn hamstring muscle but, if healthy, should be one of the Vikings' three starting linebackers.

It's not immediately clear if he will play middle linebacker, where Erin Henderson worked during spring practices, or if he will play Henderson's former position on the outside.
