More love for Desmond Bishop, this time from a pro personnel director.
Earlier in the week, a personnel director for another team became the latest scout to praise Bishop based on his extreme productivity in exhibition games.
“How does he not get on the field?” the scout said. “If you watched (Nick) Barnett the first four games you’d say Bishop is a better football player. He makes more plays than Hawk. Maybe there’s something I don’t know but I know this: That guy was making like nine, 10 tackles a game in preseason.”
Bishop had 24 tackles, two interceptions, one sack, one forced fumble and one recovered fumble in exhibition games. Of the seven fumbles forced by the entire linebacking corps in the last 20 games, three were by Bishop in a mere 142 snaps.
With so many personnel people having spoken highly of Bishop, it stands to reason that at least one team might try to acquire him before the trading deadline, which is 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Don’t trade him. Play him.
