Bishop signed a deal with the Lions on Tuesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Released by the Jets in early June, Bishop will provide depth at middle linebacker following Nick Bellore's transition from middle linebacker to fullback. He saw action in just five games for the Jets last season and will likely need to impress the coaching staff in training camp to guarantee his spot on the 53-man roster.
Bishop was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official website reports. Bishop has begun the last two seasons on the Jets' practice squad, but was promoted to the active roster in both campaigns. In 2017, Bishop appeared in five games and tallied 10 tackles. If Bishop clears waivers, he'll look to land work elsewhere prior to the start of training camps.
Bishop was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official website reports. Bishop has started the last two seasons on the Jets' practice squad, but ultimately was promoted to the active roster both times. Most recently during the 2017 campaign, Bishop saw action in five games and tallied 10 tackles. However, with the Jets signing safety J.J. Wilcox, they needed to make room on the roster, which resulted in Bishop's release. If he clears waivers, Bishop will look to latch on elsewhere prior to the start of training camp.
The Jets promoted Bishop to their 53-man roster Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Bishop has moved from the Jets' practice squad to their active roster frequently over the past two seasons. He could potentially see a relatively healthy workload Sunday against the Browns, due to the injuries to Josh Martin and Dylan Donahue.
Bishop was promoted from the practice squad to the Jets' active roster Friday, Calvin Watkins of NewsDay.com reports. Bishop spent training camp with the Jets but was unable to make it through final roster cuts. Ultimately, the 27-year-old landed on the team's practice squad. He now figures to provide depth at linebacker for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders.
