Not usually the caliber of free-agent signing that deserves its own XP post, but 1) things in the NFL are really, really slow right now, and 2) this is one of the offseason's biggest holes that was still waiting to be filled. Bishop can play middle linebacker, which moves Erin Henderson back to the weak side and out of sub packages. It also means the Vikings aren't stuck starting either special teamer Marvin Mitchell or Patriots reject Tyrone McKenzie. Now, can someone please explain to me who is going to be Seattle's third linebacker? (Bishop wouldn't have fit there, they need an outside guy... but man, they need SOMEONE.)

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
