Jets LB coach speaks highly of fourth-year pro Quinton Coples
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jets outside linebackers coach Mark Collins likes what he has seen thus far from former first-round pick Quinton Coples, who is entering his fourth season in the NFL.

"He plays with very good violence," Collins said, per NJ.com. "He can set the edge in the run. He can finish plays in the run game. He can push the pocket. He can affect the quarterback. It doesn't mean he's always going to sack the quarterback, but he can affect the quarterback. I definitely think his arrow is pointing up." 

Coples numbers through the first three seasons haven't been eye-popping, but Collins isn't getting caught up too much in the numbers game and Coples is expected to rush the passer a lot more in 2015.

"I think in a lot of ways, numbers sometimes can be overrated," Collins said. "He does a lot of things. He may not have great sack production, but he does a lot of other things very well. I know he has aspirations to change that production, and I have full confidence that he will. But I think there are a lot of things that he does well."

Jets linebacker Quinton Coples expects to rush passer more this year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Jets linebacker Quinton Coples is excited about the changes in New York this season. Coples expects to see a role change in New York's defensive scheme with new coach Todd Bowles at the helm, according to NJ.com.

"Well, I won't be jamming receivers," Coples said, comparing Bowles' defense to former coach Rex Ryan's system. "I won't be guarding the No. 1 receiver. That's a big change. Other than that, a lot more rushing. I'll be going against the quarterback a lot. I will be dropping [into pass coverage] a little bit, as well, but a lot more going forward [with rushing the quarterback]. They don't need me in coverage anymore, as you guys can tell."

Coples totaled 35 tackles in 2014 with 6 1/2 sacks and one forced fumble.

Report: Jets OLB Coples to replace injured Wilkerson at DE
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A turf toe injury that could sideline Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson against Miami on Monday night will probably force outside linebacker Quinton Coples to move into that spot, according to the New York Daily News.

Coples has not been particularly productive. He has just 22 tackles and three sacks in 11 games.
