Bishop missed all of last season with an injured hamstring and was cut by the Packers last month. He gives the Vikings a player with experience at middle linebacker, something that was lacking in the current group. Veteran Erin Henderson had moved from outside linebacker to the starting middle linebacker in minicamp. If healthy, Bishop could compete for playing time at both spots.
