Jets Waive QB Luke Falk, Activate OLB Brandon Copeland


The New York Jets announced that they have waived QB Luke Falk and activated OLB Brandon Copeland to their active roster. 

Falk, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Titans back in 2018. He wound up being among the Titans’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason last year and was later claimed off of waivers by the Dolphins.

Miami elected to cut Falk loose following this year’s draft and he was later claimed by the Jets before once again being released at the start of the regular season.

The Jets re-signed him to their practice squad soon after. He’s bounced on and off their active roster this season.

So far this season, Falk has appeared in three games for the Jets and recorded 47 completions for 73 pass attempts (64.4 percent), 416 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions. 

During his four-year college career at Washington State, Falk threw for 14,481 yards while completing 68.3 percent of his passes to go along with 119 touchdowns and 39 interceptions over the course of 42 games.

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. 

He was suspended the first four weeks of the 2019 season after violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. 

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