The Kansas City Chiefs met today with free agent ILB Desmond Bishop and this afternoon, Bishop appeared on the Sirius XM NFL Radio show “Movin’ The Chains” with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan.
During the interview, Kirwan sent out an interesting tweet regarding Bishop’s decision.

Bishop has visit the Vikings and the Chiefs and in the interview, he talked bit about how both teams worked him out and had him go through medical exams.
The hosts asked Bishop if any other teams were interested and while Bishop said there were, he didn’t sound like he was going on any other visits.
“Other teams are interested,” said Bishop. “I don’t really know if I’m going to visit them.”
After some pushing from the hosts to “get your leverage up” Bishop mentioned a couple of other teams that were interested in the Fiants and Jaguars.
“The Giants and Jacksonville are the next two that are interested,” said Bishop. “Actually, the Niners called but they are already set over there.”
Bishop, who is coming off a serious ruptured hamstring tendon injury, said most of the teams are interested in inking him to a one-year deal. Likely, the Chiefs and Vikings will want to make sure Bishop can hold up for an entire season before they commit long-term.
I think Kirwan is right that Bishiop picks a team tonight or early tomorrow. Chances are his agentis negotiating right now and it is only a matter of time before a decision is made. if he is still in KC, that could be a good sign. After all, he will need to pick up his playbook. Any spied out at the airport?
