According to Arrowhead Addict editor, Patrick Allen, Desmond Bishop made a huge mistake.
Dang. Chiefs fans really wanted to see Bishop in red and gold this season. The Vikings were the first team that Bishop visited after he became a free agent and despite taking a trip to Kansas City, it looks like Bishop’s first choice was the Vikes.
This could be for a number of reasons. The Vikings may have been able to offer more money or guarantees than the Chiefs. That, or Bishop just thought he would find a better fit in Minnesota.
Now it looks like the Chiefs will have to roll with Akeem Jordan and rookie Nico Johnson at ILB. It isn’t the sexiest of camp competitions but hopefully Jordan can push Johnson and help him develop into a future stater for the Chiefs.
Bishop would have been a huge pickup for the Chiefs but this doesn’t mean KC still won’t look for help at the position this summer. As training camps wind down and we get closer to the season and often veteran players are surprise cuts. There may still be some veterans hitting the market the Chiefs can take a look at.
