Source: Jets agree to terms on a four-year deal with first-round pick Quinton Coples

BY MANISH MEHTA



The Daily News first reported on Twitter on Thursday that the Jets have agreed to terms on a deal with first-round pick Quinton Coples. It's a standard four-year deal (full guaranteed) with a fifth-year team option.

The Jets now have two unsigned draft picks remaining: third-rounder Demario Davis and seventh-rounder Jordan White.

This deal got done relatively fast there's not alot of 1st rounders signed right now

http://nyjetscap.com...s/rookiecap.php

General Managers factor in who a player's agent is when they are making the decision to draft. it's not the only factor but it's gotta be in their heads. i don't know who Coples agent is but id bet money it's not Revis' agent.

It would have been nice if Vernon Gholston held out years ago. But it doesn't matter now.

Post image for Jets Sign First Round Draft Pick Quinton Coples

It’s been a busy day for the Jets front office, just hours after signing round seven pick Antonio Allen, the Daily News is reporting they have signed first round pick (#16 overall) defensive end Quinton Coples to a guaranteed four-year contract:

The Daily News first reported on Twitter on Thursday that the Jets have agreed to terms on a deal with first-round pick Quinton Coples. It’s a standard four-year deal (full guaranteed) with a fifth-year team option.

Source: Manish Mehta

Only two of the Jets eight draft picks remain unsigned: Pick No.77 – Demario Davis and No.244 – Jordan White.

Anywhere from 4-6 is normal, and according to what's up there there's an option for a 5th.

If he's any good he'll be locked up before the contract is up anyway. It's the NFL, length of a contract means jack sh*t in this league anyway.

OTOH, looks like Coples wasn't so lazy when it comes to getting paid.

Hopefully he stays that way, which, honestly, I think he will. Almost every (Jets) player has been ripped apart this year for something, and each one knows his flaw and what he needs to brush up on.

Which Team is he the Head Coach of now? - Let's see how the kid plays on the field, I'm hoping he's the 10 sack interior line we've missed since Dennis Byrd. (by the way one of my fav Jets and people).

Well, in his defense, Coples DID steal his lunch money. It's only natural for Gruden to have ill feelings towards him.

Not anymore. Even Cam Newton only got a 4-year deal and he was the #1 overall pick. I'm even surprised they allowed a team-only option for a 5th year, since effectively this would make it a 5 year deal unless the Jets "cut" him by not exercising the option. Someone else maybe could comment on that loophole.

The big losers in this are the teams who don't get as many cheap years from a first rounder, and to-be busts who won't get gargantuan Jamarcus Russell/Vernon Gholston contracts anymore. Winners in this are non-busts - particularly RBs - drafted high, and veterans who will now be the beneficiaries of the extra cap room not used on rookie deals.

Overall it's a better system IMO. Shouldn't be any players holding out until late August unless the team or player/agent just break balls for the sake of breaking balls.

Thanks. Agreed its a better system. It was ridiculous that a player like VG earned more in his career for doing nothing compared to a solid 8-10 year veteran who maybe never hit the big pay day because they dont have the name or flash but have been super productive. And it was even more ridiculous the rookies could literally strong arm teams into giving them more money. The fact a rookie could hold out is beyond stupid IMO.

Seems like it's a loophole pretty much all NFL teams managed to dig up, because if you actually look, most of the first round picks signed so far this year have had that same 5th year option. If I had to guess, it's probably something both sides are willing to do as it's a means for teams to lock their rookies up for longer while I imagine it probably helps the agents sneak some bigger money into that part of the contract.
