Sokol was waived by the Chargers on Monday. Sokol was buried on the Chargers' depth chart at tight end, which makes this decision relatively unsurprising. He spent the latter half of last season on their practice squad after getting dropped by Detroit. He is now set to again look for a new destination.
Sokol was elevated from the Chargers' practice squad Friday. Positions have recently opened up on Los Angeles' active roster, with both Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Malik Jefferson (shoulder) getting moved to injured reserve. The 25-year-old tight end will have an opportunity at a second consecutive appearance to close out the 2020 campaign, this time against the defending-champion Chiefs. During his NFL debut Week 16 against Denver, Sokol fielded all 13 of his snaps on special teams.
Sokol was elevated to the Chargers' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old joined the Chargers' practice squad in late October after being let go by the Lions, and he'll be a gameday elevation for Week 16. Sokol has yet to make his NFL debut since going undrafted out of Michigan State in 2019.
The Chargers signed Sokol to the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Sokol was let go from the Lions' practice squad last week, but he'll get a fresh start in Los Angeles. The second-year tight end out of Michigan State has yet to make his NFL debut. With Virgil Green (ankle) on IR, Sokol will add depth at the position in case another tight end gets hurt.
The Lions waived Sokol on Saturday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Sokol competed for a run-blocking role with Detroit, but he lost to undrafted rookie Hunter Bryant (leg), who likely has more pass-catching upside. If Sokol clears waivers, he's likely a practice squad candidate with the Lions carrying just three tight ends.
