Copeland has worked his butt off on practice squads over the years, turning himself from an undrafted player from Penn into a guy who started 10 games for the Jets in 2018 and could have a solid NFL career ahead of him. However, with an Ivy League education, Copeland is already thinking about what he’s going to do when he’s done with football.
In addition to keeping himself in shape, Copeland spends the offseason working at Weiss Multi-Strategy Advisers as an analyst. He also teaches a financial literacy seminar alongside one of his Penn professors.
Between his job as an analyst and the fact that he saves 90% of his NFL income, Copeland could end up making more money after football than during his career.
