Coples & Davis in NY Jets Forum Posted August 31, 2015 Face it, Coples is an OLB, and that's not going to change any time soon. With brand new systems in place, the coaches are using the preseason to get players up to speed for the regular season. They are not going to waste this precious time to conduct an experiment or as some sort of deception tactic. It would be a different story if there was an established system, coach, and players in place for multiple years. With that being said, Coples is at his best with his hand in the dirt, so that's where I expect him to be much of the time. Either way, this will be Coples' last year here. He's a decent player, but his motor sucks. I believe the new regime will be moving on when he becomes a FA after this season. Davis doesn't have any motor issues, but his instincts aren't great. Both players will be starters in 2015, but there is no guarantee either of them are here long term. Davis has a better chance to stick around after this year because he'll still be on his rookie contract. Here is the problem the way I see it, Coples isn't a great OLB, but he is likely better than what we have (especially with the injuries); while he is better at DE, he isn't close to the best DL we have. We are stacked at DL, and not at OLB; this is why he was moved before; this is why AA was moved to CB. He is in a bad place here.
