The Kansas City Chiefs are courting free agent ILB Desmond Bishop and it appears as though they are one of three teams in the running to land the former Green Bay Packer.
From NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport:

Bishop also sent out a new tweet yesterday for the first time since beginning his free agency tour.
Decisions decisions!!! Stuff spot, but great position to be in because I have options. Truly a blessing.

It looks like the Chiefs are now in a three-horse race. I think KC could have some serious competition with the Giants entering the mix. New York is a yearly Super Bowl contender so I am sure that is alluring to Bishop.
Still, the Chiefs have GM John Dorsey, who was one of the personnel people that scouted and drafted Bishop, as their ace in the hole. Hopefully Bishop will want to continue his career with one of the men who gave hi a shot in the NFL.
I would imagine Bishop is taking the weekend to think over his decision (and to see if any of the suitors up there offer) but I think he will pick his new team soon. Training camp is about four weeks away and Bishop will want to get into his new team’s defensive playbook so he can hit the ground running later this month.
What do you think, Addicts? Will Bishop choose the Chiefs?
