Redskins Release Seven Players Including Veteran LB Desmond Bishop

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Redskins have released veteran LB Desmond Bishop on Monday.

Bishop, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Packers. He spent five years with Green Bay and helped them win a Super Bowl before he suffered a serious hamstring injury that cost him the 2012 season.

Bishop later caught on with the Vikings, but unfortunately suffered a torn ACL and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. The 49ers wound up signing him to a one-year contract in March before releasing him with an injury settlement at the start of the season.

Washington elected to sign him to a future/reserve contract back in January.

In 2014, Bishop appeared in two games, recording two tackles for the 49ers.
