The Green Bay Packers are actively shopping linebacker Desmond Bishop, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah reported Saturday. The news is a bit odd considering the Packers just cut his backup D.J. Smith on Wednesday.

Bishop led the team with 115 tackles and added five sacks as the full-time starter in 2011. His development allowed the Packers to part ways with Nick Barnett after their Super Bowl win. Bishop then signed a four-year, $19 million deal before the 2011 season. He's coming off a season-ending hamstring injury suffered during the preseason.
