Three days after Desmond Bishop agreed to terms on a one-year deal, the Minnesota Vikings announced the signing on Thursday afternoon.
To make room on the 90-man roster, the Vikings waived another linebacker, Stanford Keglar, who signed in May and hasn't played in the NFL since Houston cut him before the 2011 season.
They still have nine linebackers after signing Bishop, 28, and cutting Keglar, 27, who received no guaranteed money on his deal. On the day he signed, Keglar told 1500ESPN.com he planned to retire if he didn't get picked up this offseason.
Two NFL sources said last week the Vikings haven't determined Bishop's position and he could end up competing at both weakside and middle linebacker, where Erin Henderson took all the offseason reps.
