Coples dropped 15 pounds before camp

Quinton Coples dropped 15 pounds before reporting to camp (Cimini, July 20).

He is now playing in the 270-275 pound range.

Coples entered the league as a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end, but made the transition to rush linebacker in 2013. He made 4.5 sacks after coming back from a broken ankle.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Coples has slimmed down some and has been training this offseason with some players who are well positioned to give him pointers at his specific role.  We are looking for good things from Coples this year as he gets further removed from his injury.

Coples clearly has been working hard in the offseason and I expect this will translate to success on the field. Q-tip to the rescue!

what scares me about Coples is that he might leave the Jets and become really good somewhere else

#Bengals signed UDFA DT LaKendrick Ross (6-5, 365), according to his agent, Glen Lansky. Was not selected in Supplemental Draft.

Unrelated but is profootballtalk the biggest loser site in the world? Cause they had an article up about Rex saying that Harris is underrated and all the comment replies are "shut up fatty Rex" and "jest suck worst team in the NFL" like praising Harris was this horrible crime

The Jets have one of the best defensive front 7s in football. I think the key is the pass rushing of Coples. The Jets drafted a d-lineman in the first round three years in a row. How Coples does will determine if that was a mistake. The Jets need an outside pass rusher.

Nothing can be measured in terms of season success until we have a QB in place.  Yes Geno is starting, he's starting until he goofs up too much, the fans call for Vick, and MM decides a change is needed.

So,  I just hope Geno progressed to be the QB in good standing.

@UncleJoesJetFarm I thought the article was balanced and well-written.


Therefore, I will take this as a tacit admission from yourself that your favorite writer is NOT balanced on every other article he's ever written.

The good part about him having two so so years is if he does play well we should be able to resign him relatively cheap

@Kyle Ely It's run by Mike Florio, notorious Jet Hater to the degree that Cimini fantasizes about being him. 


And when you talk "lowest level football fan" you are talking about the comments section of PFT. 


So, biggest loser site, biggest dumpster fire, whatever you want to call it...yes. It's awful on many levels.

I guess Coples WAS the outside rusher, we just didn't know it at the time!

@Bent I do not approve this message.  Too bad it would be a penalty, but the Captain Morgan on Brady's helmet would get my seal of approval.

I used Howie Long as a contemporary of Klecko, a DL, and was treated as a rock star while active.  Oh and Klecko was all- pro in two more positions than Long.

@Kyle Ely @levi

If he said David Harris a great leader for our defense and a good football player.  That's fine.

To say David Harris one of the top 100 players in football is just not defensible.  He is likely not even top 250 player.

@jetlife  I thought "The crippler" did it better but he did actually kill people so its an unfair advantage.

@jetlife Oh yeah, that's a 15 yarder and first down every time.

While Brady is on his knees, head facing down, Coples should jump behind him and pretend to fire two shots into the back of his skull, aka "The Hernandez."

What about the Michael Sam Sack Dance (as seen on Oprah)?  It looks like a guy in a wheelchair trying to get a bee off his belt buckle.

But Klecko despised Gastineau worse than Long did.

@SackDance99  I fear they would injure themselves trying to do that.
