He is now playing in the 270-275 pound range.
Coples entered the league as a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end, but made the transition to rush linebacker in 2013. He made 4.5 sacks after coming back from a broken ankle.
Coples has slimmed down some and has been training this offseason with some players who are well positioned to give him pointers at his specific role. We are looking for good things from Coples this year as he gets further removed from his injury.
