Both players will revert back to the Chargers’ practice squad on Tuesday without having to clear waivers.
Pope, 26, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville State back in May. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later claimed off of waivers by the Jets.
Pope has had brief stints with the Seahawks, Colts and Texans before signing on to the Chargers’ practice squad back in December. He was later promoted to their active roster for a few weeks and returned to the Chargers on a futures contract this past January.
However, Pope was later released and later re-signed to their practice squad.
In 2019, Pope appeared in 14 games for the Chargers and rushed for 20 yards on 10 carries (1.4 YPC) to go along with two receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown. He also totaled 288 kick return yards.
