    There are conflicting reports on this. He would have had to be converted to OLB, and he doesn't have the versitility of Coples. Coples is learning all the positions on the line in a much more complicated scheme. ROY trophys aren't handed out until week 8 I believe.

    He also told Quinton Coples if he was at 16 the Jets would take him. This is seriously the dumbest story ever with Chandler Jones and Rex.

    Non story.

    Pats are happy they got Jones and Rex is happy with Coples.

    Rex told multiple guys that the team would take them, obviously. So did every other coach, I'm sure.

    I'd say Rex landed his guy.

    "He just said he promised he was going to take me and he definitely kept his word and hes definitely a man of his word, hes looking forward to me coming. Hes a good coach. Hes a good coach. Hes the best there is. Im definitely going to work hard for him, Coples said. I definitely could tell he definitely had some type of feeling about me, and Im really glad things worked out.

    Especially since he's on pace for serious ROY consideration.

    What else would he say? "Oh, those blasted Patriots hoodwinked us again!"

    Jones wanted no part of the Jersey circus act.
