While linebacker Desmond Bishop was in Minnesota trying to win a starting job with the Vikings, a part of his past with the Green Bay Packers was plucked from him, according to his Twitter account (@Desbishop55).
Bishop tweeted that the jersey he wore in Super Bowl XLV with the Green Bay Packers was stolen from his house in California.
"My house in cali got broken into the other day & my SB XLV jersey was stolen. The investigating cop went on vacay tho. smh. checking ebay/CL," he said, referring to online sales sites eBay and Craig's List.
Bishop was a starting linebacker for the Packers during their 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6, 2011. He started that game and had eight tackles in the win.
That capped a solid 2010 season for him, his first as a full-time starter. He started 12 of 15 games, had 103 tackles, three sacks, eight passes defensed, two forced fumbles and returned an interception for a touchdown.
He played one more season for the Packers, starting 13 games in 2011, before a preseason hamstring injury ended his 2012 campaign before it started.
Bishop signed a one-year contract with the Vikings in June and has been trying to win a starting job with them.
