The Bills have the potential to reunite Bishop with former Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid while the Packers (fanwise) have been buzzing a lot over the former Utah safety.

A possible interesting aside: while not listed by PFF as needing safeties, the New Orleans Saints did interview both Cole Bishop and Sione Vaki after Pro Day wrapped up.
