The Minnesota Vikings and linebacker Desmond Bishop agreed to a one-year deal on Monday, reports NFL.com.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bishop was released by the Green Bay Packers last week after missing all of last season with a ruptured hamstring tendon suffered in the Aug. 9 preseason opener at San Diego and became expendable when the team decided to re-sign Brad Jones and restructure A.J. Hawk’s deal — both at starter’s money.

Bishop had not participated in any of the team’s organized team activity practices this offseason.

Bishop had 115 tackles, five sacks, and two forced fumbles in 13 starts in 2011.

He was set to make $3.464 million this season after signing a four-year, $19 million extension in January 2011.
