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.
