Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Former Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop has agreed to a one-year deal with the Vikings, his agent confirmed via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

The 28-year-old, who sat out all of last season with a hamstring injury, was cut by the Packers last week.

Bishop visited with the Vikings last week along with the Chiefs and had interest from the Jaguars, Giants, and 49ers.

Bishop is expected to compete with Erin Henderson for the starting job at middle linebacker.

Before missing last season, Bishop racked up 218 tackles between 2010 and 2011.
