Bishop: Facing Packers part of the reason he joined Vikings

In an article recently published on, Desmond Bishop unsurprisingly stated that facing the Packers was part of the reason why he joined Minnesota. 

"It was part of the reason," Bishop told NFL Network's "NFL AM" on Tuesday. "And if I can get a chance to play against Aaron Rodgers, I think that right there, in itself, is a motivation. You know, you want to play against the best. ... When I was playing for Green Bay, the games I cherished ... most was playing against the Vikings because I had a chance to play against (running back) Adrian Peterson. ... That's my mindset. I want to play against the best."

It'll definitely be interesting to see him face his former team. But I doubt he'll really decide the winner.

At first I was thinking he took a dig against the Packers, but he said he had no hard feelings in that the Packers chose Hawk and Jones over him. One thing about the Packers, the players they release usually seem to harbor no hard feelings.
