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.)

Our offseason Four Downs series ends with a look at the NFC West's biggest remaining holes and their most notable UDFA signings. The Rams and 49ers have to kick-start their passing games, Arizona's offense lacks a big dimension, and the Seahawks continue to rely on Russell Wilson's magic tricks.
