Jets move Quinton Coples from defensive end to outside linebacker

As far back as February, Rex Ryan started dropping hints about Quinton Coples becoming more of an edge player. He'll be on the edge, all right. Coples, used mostly as an interior lineman as a rookie, will be moved to 3-4 outside linebacker, according to a league source. Ryan uses multiple fronts, so it's quite possible Coples will be deployed as a down lineman in certain situations. (ESPN.com)
