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 and needing to make room on the roster, it resulted in Bishop's release. If he clears waivers, Bishop will look to latch on elsewhere prior to the start of training camp.
Bishop has moved from the Jets' practice squad to its 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 waived Thursday by the Jets.
Bishop has moved back and forth between the Jets' active and practice rosters over the last two seasons. Most recently, he played 12 defensive snaps in the team's loss Sunday to the Raiders. He's made three career starts and recorded 17 tackles.
Bishop suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Raiders and is questionable to return.
Bishop had not recorded a tackle before exiting Sunday's contest, and if he is unable to return, Dylan Donahue will be expected to serve as the primary reserve outside linebacker.
Bishop signed onto the Jets' practice squad, Eddie Greenburg of the team's official site reports.
Bishop took many first-team snaps throughout the summer, but don't be fooled, he wasn't going to be much more than a depth linebacker.
