Jets OLB Quinton Coples excited for switch from coverage to pass rush

The New York Jets will no longer field a Rex Ryan-led defense as they transition to new head coach Todd Bowles' system. Most of the same players are still in place, but some will see new roles in Bowles' and defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers' defense.One of those players is outside linebacker Quinton Coples, who was used more in coverage than pass rushing under Ryan. For Bowles...

New York Jets breakout candidates in 2015

SS Calvin Pryor Pryor stepped into an unfortunate situation his rookie year as then general manager John Idzik had done a terrible job of putting together a formidable secondary. Idzik’s decision not to address the secondary via free agency forced Rex Ryan to play Pryor at free safety as opposed to his natural strong safety position. This year however, the Jets will have no shortage...

Jets Exercise Quinton Coples 5th year option.

The Jets have exercised the 5th year option for OLB Quinton Coples, which will pay him 7.8 million dollars. To date, Coples has not been the pass rusher that the Jets hoped for when they drafted him with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. He is the owner of 16.5 sacks over the past 3 years, and a mere 2 forced fumbles. Needless to say, the new regime has little to no obligation...

5 Jets Who Could Break Out in 2015

1. Quinton Coples View image | gettyimages.com He had a career high 6.5 sacks on the year. Expect that number to increase. He’s a pass rusher and now, with a beefed up secondary, he’ll be off the leash because of so much help playing behind him. The Jets are in need of a complimentary outside rusher with Calvin Pace aging, so don’t be surprised if they grab someone...

This is a major concern for the New York receiving corps because he in no way takes any pressure...

The New York Jets Linebacker Problem

An underrated need for the New York Jets is the linebacker position. Todd Bowles is likely to predominantly run a 3-4 defense with a multitude of other schemes mixed in but the cupboard is currently bare behind the Jets stout defensive line. Let’s look at how they got there, where they are now and how they can improve beginning with this off-season. Under Rex Ryan, the linebacker...
