The Arizona Cardinals will spin the wheels on another veteran inside linebacker.
The team later announced the signing.
Bishop has started just one game in the past two seasons due to injury. In 2012 he ruptured his hamstring in August, missing the entire season -- the Packers released him after the year. He then played just 29 snaps over four games for the Vikings in 2013 before tearing his ACL.
The 30-year-old had two very productive seasons in 2010 and 2011, earning 103 and 115 tackles, respectively, in 25 combined starts, before injuries wiped away the next two years.
Bishop, if healthy, represents a better fit than Sims as an inside linebacker in the Cardinals' 3-4 scheme; however, he's still a roster-bubble candidate.
