Giants looking for linebacker depth
Not only are the New York Giants having wide receiver Kenny Golladay in for a free agent visit, but they will also be hosting linebacker Brandon Copeland.
Michaael Rothstein of ESPN broke the news on Twitter.
The 29 year-old Copeland went undrafted out of the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. He ended up signing with his hometown Baltimore Ravens that season, but was also on the Tennessee Titans roster in 2013-14. He then signed with the Detroit Lions and was there until 2017. Then he played for the New Jets until 2019 and was with the New England Patriots this past season.
So far for his career, Copeland has recorded 117 tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and four pass deflections.
Copeland’s best season as an NFL player was in 2018 with the Jets when he had 35 tackles, five sacks and a Pro Football Focus grade of 67.4.
Copeland’s season with the Pats in 2020 was cut short back in October when he suffered a torn pectoral muscle. I would imagine the Giants want to bring him in to have him looked over.
Aside from being an NFL player, Copeland is also a college professor.
