QUINTON COPLES RUMORS

New York Jets Man of Mystery – Quinton Coples

What do we know about New York Jets pass rusher Quinton Coples? The man is a physical specimen; a 6’6″ – 290 pound behemoth that can run like a tight end (4.78 second 40). His rare blend of size, speed, and power provide versatility and the potential to be a match up nightmare. All positive and all tantalizing. It is what we do not know about Coples that is concerning. We...

Klecko on Jets’ Coples: ‘Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane’

82-Day New York Jets Warning – Quinton Coples Unleashed

Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays...

QUINTON COPLES: Budding Rookie Ready to Blossom

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quinton Coples is a weed. And that's no knock on the sixteenth overall draft pick either. Weeds, like the dandelion, sprout fast -- setting up roots and, if not uprooted, continues to rapidly grow in strength and size.Much like weeds, Coples was not welcomed to many Jets fans' gardens -- instead desiring a prettier pass-rushing plant (Melvin Ingram...

Quinton Coples fits right in with the Jets

The New York Jets made Quinton Coples the 16th overall draft pick in 2012 and if it wasn't for Marvin Austin being suspended he may have never had the chance.

Jets rookie Quinton Coples has already “grasped”most of the team’s playbook.

NEW YORK—Jets first-round draft pick Quinton Coples obviously heard about the Jets wanting Bruce Irvin really bad. If they had their way it would have been Irvin facing the media at the Jets rookie mini-camp yesterday. While a bit over-zealous, Coples showed everyone how hard he’s willing to work to prove that he’s the best man for the job. Please click the link below to...
