MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed veteran Desmond Bishop to a one-year deal to add much-needed help at linebacker.

The Vikings announced the signing on Thursday. The 28-year-old Bishop is the latest player to come to Minnesota from rival Green Bay, joining the likes of Greg Jennings, Brett Favre, Darren Sharper and Ryan Longwell.

Bishop missed all of last season with an injured hamstring and was cut by the Packers last month. He gives the Vikings a player with experience at middle linebacker, something that was lacking in the current group. Veteran Erin Henderson had moved from outside linebacker to the starting middle linebacker in minicamp. If healthy, Bishop could compete for playing time at both spots.

To make room for him, the Vikings released linebacker Stanford Keglar.
