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.
