Jets Waive QB Luke Falk

Luke Falk‘s tenure with the Jets has come to an end. The team waived the quarterback this morning. Taking his spot on the roster is linebacker Brandon Copeland, who had been suspended for the first four games of the season.

With both Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian out of the lineup, the Jets were forced to turn to the 24-year-old Falk, who had previously been sitting on the organization’s practice squad. He ended up getting into three games for New York, completing 64.4-percent of his passes for 416 yards, three interceptions, and zero scores. The Jets were outscored 20-61 in his two starts.

With Darnold set to return tomorrow vs. the Cowboys, Falk’s days as a starter were clearly over. However, the Jets won’t even keep him around as a backup, instead turning to David Fales. Falk, a 2018 sixth-round pick out of Washington State, will now be looking to join his fourth team in less than two seasons. There’s always a chance he could land back on the Jets practice squad.

Copeland joined the Jets last season and ended up having a career year, compiling 35 tackles and five sacks in 16 games (10 starts). In August, he was slapped with a four-game ban for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

        It is, unsually accompanied by a funny picture of spongebob
        But i can’t post a meme here.
        I am mocking the Kaepernick cucks who scream for him every time a QB gets a cold

          You’re the cuck, memelord. Glad you can add such a brilliant addition to the Kaepernick debate. Fact is he’s better than Falk or Siemian

            Is he? No clue what kind of condition he is in or how effective he would be at 31. He was on the level of Fitzpatrick Jets stats when he exited the NFL. The Jets had a backup level QB and he got hurt immediately. No one expects a team to carry 2 higher paid backups. And no one expects a guy off the street to do any better. Cutler was terrible and he was barely retired.

            Fact is he can’t read a defense and he is going to command more money than teams feel he is worth
            When are ppl going to realize he had his shot to develop into what Russell Wilson has or DeSaun Watson but he never could.
            What are teams suppose to do now bring back Andre Ware for a visit or Akili Smith how bout Jeff Blake.
            I didn’t hear anybody crying about these black QBs not getting chances. And whether anybody likes it or not his actions for all the good publicity it brought has negative publicity as well that can’t be ignored. His skill set is just not worth the drama, money & time that comes with him.
            Jets were not going to a Super Bowl and the fans can cry all they want Darnold’s mono is a blessing in disguise because even with him they were not winning many if not any of those games. Now he gets to develop in the weaker part of the schedule and the Jets get the draft pick they hopefully for his sake use on an offensive lineman. Because that line is offensively bad.

    Take a knee. I’m offended that anyone would question kap…..He is a waste of oxygen. I’m better than him and I can’t even throw a spiral. Everyone has to just act as though he is gone for good. Because, he is gone for good lol
