New York Jets’ Quinton Coples Ready For New Challenges In 2013
Soon to be in his second year with the Jets’, Coples is going to be making the transition from the defensive end to the outside linebacker position.
When asked about the switch to outside linebacker during this year’s off season workouts, Coples had nothing but a positive attitude. A young player who is able to accept his role, and more importantly embrace it, is rare and will be something great to see.
Jets’ defensive players like Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis will need Coples more than ever to continue his progress on this team as one of the future cornerstones on the defensive side of the ball.
Coples accepting the role and embracing it is just the beginning. Being an outside linebacker also allows him to play more defense on the pass-catching tight ends in NFL, such as Rob Gronkowski and Dustin Keller, he seems confident that he will be able to take on this new challenge in this chapter of his career, and his help will surely be needed against the stars in the upcoming season.
Hopefully the rest of the Jets can take notes on the Coples’ attitude and are up to the challenge this year.
