Jets Sign LB Brandon Copeland


The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve signed LB Brandon Copeland to a contract.

Copeland, 26, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Pennsylvania back in 2013. He lasted just a few months with the team before he was waived and later caught on with the Titans during his rookie season.

After a year in Tennessee, Copeland signed a one-year contract with the Lions and returned to Detroit last April on a one-year, $615,000 exclusive rights contract.

The Lions waived him with an injury designation during the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list where he remained for the entire 2017 season.

In 2016, Copeland appeared in all 16 games for the Lions and recorded 16 tackles, no sacks and a forced fumble.
