Linebacker Brandon Copeland, one of the top performers at the NFL Veterans Combine last month, has signed with the Detroit Lions according to the Baltimore Sun.
While Stephen Tulloch will start in the middle and DeAndre Levy on the outside, it's possible Copeland could compete with Tahir Whitehead and Kyle Van Noy to start at the other outside spot.
Copeland, who is 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, was undrafted out of Penn in 2013 and signed with the Ravens. He spent time with the Tennessee Titans in 2013 and 2014.
The Sun reported that Copeland ran a 4.52 40 at the veterans’ combine and the Bengals, Chiefs, Jets and Vikings were also interested in signing him.
