Berry was signed by the New England Patriots in May of 2020 as an un-drafted free agent. He was waived by the Patriots on Aug. 15, before getting signed by the Lions a few days later. Berry got waived once again a few days later, but was re-signed by the Lions in October of 2020.

Sokol started his NFL career with the Los Angeles Chargers as an un-drafted free agent in April of 2019. Later that August he got waived, and picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars. This past January was Sokol’s 2nd time as a member of the Lions, as he also spent time in Detroit after getting waived by the Jaguars. He also had more stints with the Chargers (2020-2021), Jaguars (2021) as a member of the practice squad. Sokol appeared in the Chargers’ Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos in 2020.
