Added to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

Sokol secured a spot on the Patriots' practice squad Wednesday.

Sokol bounced back and forth between New England's practice squad and active rosters in 2022, and it looks like he is heading towards a similar situation this year. The team only opted to carry two tight ends on the active roster, which left him on the outside looking in, but there will presumably be opportunities for him to be called up to the active roster as the season progresses.

Let go by New England

Sokol was cut by the Patriots on Tuesday.

Despite signing a reserve/future contract in January, Sokol was let go by the Patriots on Tuesday. The 27-year-old tight end has played in just five games in his career and has failed to record a reception. With the 2023 season approaching, Sokol will now look to carve out a role on a team's practice squad.

Signs new deal with Pats

New England signed Sokol to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Sokol was claimed off waivers by the Patriots in May before being signed to the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old tight end was then elevated for three games this regular season, including each of the final two weeks. Sokol still did not log a target during the 2022 campaign, and he'll now look to record the first reception of his NFL career heading into the 2023 season.

Shifts back to practice squad

Sokol reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Sokol was brought up for Sunday's regular-season finale loss to Buffalo with No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith (concussion) inactive for the second time in as many weeks. However, the practice-squad tight end went without a target for the third game in a row this season, as he played just six offensive snaps behind Hunter Henry, the latter of whom played all 68 offensive snaps. Sokol will now enter the offseason still in search of the first reception of his career.

Brought back up to active roster

The Patriots elevated Sokol from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Sokol will be elevated for the second game in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The 27-year-old was brought up ahead of the Week 17 game against Miami and played 10 offensive snaps in place of Jonnu Smith (concussion), though Sokol did not see a target against the Dolphins. With Smith remaining out Week 18, Sokol should once again serve as New England's only other available tight end behind starter Hunter Henry.

Put back on practice squad

The Patriots reverted Sokol to their practice squad Monday.

Sokol was brought up to the active roster ahead of the Week 17 win over Miami while No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith sat out with a concussion. Sokol logged 10 snaps against the Dolphins and didn't see any targets. He could be moved up to the active roster again Week 18 if Smith is forced to miss the must-win affair against Buffalo, though the bulk of work at tight end will likely go to Hunter Henry, who tallied 60 snaps and caught five of six targets for 52 yards Week 17.

Elevated for Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2022-12-31

The Patriots elevated Sokol from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of the Week 17 contest against Miami, Mike Reiss of reports.

Sokol was previously elevated for the Week 5 win over Detroit, and he played eight offensive snaps in that contest, though he didn't receive any targets or record any stats. Jonnu Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and Hunter Henry (knee) is questionable, so Sokol could be in line for a healthy dose of snaps.
