Quinton Coples Signing: New York Jets Sign First-Round Draft Choice

The New York Jets have reportedly agreed to terms with their first-round draft pick Quinton Coples (via New York Daily News).

The deal with the defensive end out of North Carolina is for four-years (fully guaranteed) with the team option for a fifth season. With the signing of Coples, the Jets have just two unsigned 2012 NFL Draft picks remaining: third-rounder Demario Davis (77th overall) and seventh-rounder Jordan White (244th overall).

Coples was selected 16th overall in the draft after back-to-back first-team All-ACC seasons in 2010 and 2011 for the North Carolina Tar Heels. As a senior, Coples had 55 tackles and 7.5 sacks after recording 59 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior.
