Jets LB Brandon Copeland Suspended Four Games


The NFL announced Wednesday that they’ve suspended Jets LB Brandon Copeland for the first four games of the 2019 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Copeland, 28, 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 on a one-year, $615,000 exclusive rights contract the following year. The Jets signed Copeland to a contract last year and he returned to New York on a one-year deal worth up to $3 million. 

In 2018, Copeland appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and recorded 35 tackles, five sacks and two pass defenses.
