Jets' Coples moving from DE to OLB

While Coples doesn't have a lot of experience at linebacker, Ryan worked him out there during his pro day and had him practice there briefly last spring.

"I'm new to this," Coples said, "but at the end of the day, I've been working on it so I'm ready for it."

Note: WR Stephen Hill, the team's second-round pick a year ago, is looking to bounce back from a disappointing rookie season in which he had 21 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and ended up on injured reserve after spraining a knee ligament. He had surgery in December, but is feeling completely healthy now. "I really don't even think about the performance last year," he said. "I know I just have to get better every year. You're going to have flaws, faults and things like that. I'm just ready to just get this stuff started."
