Desmond Bishop - Harry How

Free-agent linebacker Desmond Bishop said Thursday that the Giants are among the teams interested. It seems likely, though, that Bishop will sign elsewhere.

Good morning, New York Giants' fans. Here are your Friday morning links, including the news that free-agent linebacker Desmond Bishop and the Giants appear to have some level of interest in each other.

Bishop told Sirius XM NFL Radio on Thursday called the Giants "a real good situation" and said they had expressed, but the former Green Bay Packers linebacker also said "I don't really know if I'm going to visit them."

Bishop, recently released by the Packers, has visited the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs and appears likely to choose between those two teams. The Giants would apparently be in the next group if Bishop decides to widen his search for his next NFL employer.

Is the 28-year-old Bishop a good fit for the Giants? He had 115 tackles and two forced fumbles in 2011, but missed last season with a serious hamstring injury. Bishop, entering his seventh season, spent the last few seasons as an inside linebacker in the Packers 3-4 scheme. With the Giants he would, obviously, have to transition to the 4-3.

Bishop to the Giants does not sound likely to happen. It is, however, interesting that the Giants continue to scour the market for potential upgrades.
