49ers Re-Signing ILB Desmond Bishop To A One-Year Deal


The 49ers are re-signing veteran ILB Desmond Bishop to a one-year contract, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

San Francisco has clearly been in the market for inside linebacker help since Patrick Willis and Chris Borland both decided to retire from the NFL.

The 49ers have reportedly considered a number of free agent options such as Lance BriggsBrandon Spikes and Erin Henderson in recent days, but it appears as though they’re comfortable moving forward with Bishop.

Bishop, 30, 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 signed him to a contract late last season and he wound up appearing in two games, but recorded just tackles for San Francisco.
