Dolphins' Quinton Coples: Expected to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quinton Coples is expected to be waived by Miami before free agency begins.

Coples didn't play much once acquired by Miami so this news shouldn't catch anyone by surprise. His release would save the team $7.75 million against the cap.

Dolphins' Quinton Coples: Has minimal impact with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Copies finished the season with eight tackles but not one of those came since he signed with Miami on Nov. 24 after being released by the Jets.

Coples barely played with Miami even with all of its injuries to the linebacking corps. Perhaps next season and another training camp will give him the fresh start he needs.

Quinton Coples: Claimed by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coples was claimed off waivers by the Dolphins on Tuesday after being released by the Jets on Monday, ESPN's James Walker reports.

There was no chance the 2012 first-round selection would pass through waivers, as he has at least shown signs of promise as a pass-rusher, even while largely disappointing. Coples piled up 16.5 sacks through his first three seasons, but he didn't have any in 10 games for the Jets this year, and eventually lost his part-time role in the defense. The Dolphins will likely try to work him in as a situational pass-rusher.

Jets' Quinton Coples: Released on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quinton Coples was released by the New York Jets on Monday.

The 16th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Coples never quite lived up to expectations, yet his release still comes as a surprise. He had 5.5, 4.5 and 6.5 sacks in his first three seasons, but he's barely seen the field in 2015 since the first few weeks of the year. It won't be long before he signs with another team.

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."
