WR Terrance Copper - Free Agent
|6-0, 201||Born: 3-12-1982||College: East Carolina||Drafted: ---|
2012 Week 10 vs PIT (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Copper's first target came on the Chiefs' final drive when Matt Cassel threw into double coverage deep down the left sideline.
2012 Week 11 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Copper was Quinn's favorite target in the second half and showed good hands when given the opportunity. He ran two crisp hitch routes and fought hard for extra yardage after the catch.
2012 Week 12 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Copper had two catches in traffic on balls that were not very well placed. He did well on both to adjust his body and make the grab but had no chance to get up the field after the catch because of the inaccurate throws.
2012 Week 14 vs CLE (3 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Copper made a really nice move on Haden on his deep hitch move and then spun up field for additional yardage. The 17 yard gain was nearly broken for a score but he was tripped up as he turned. He also made a nice diving catch on a perfectly placed 8 yard out.
2011 Week 13 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Copper's only catch was a short dump into the flat, where he came in motion and then broke out. Palko dumped the ball to him and he had a nice catch and run for 10 yards.
2011 Week 15 vs GB (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Copper got the start in Bowe's absence and looked good on first drive before disappearing. He ran a professional route on a 3rd and 8 to pick up 10 yards and a first down. He also beat Woodson on a slant route and picked up 10 more. Once Bowe got back on the field Copper's day was pretty much done.
2011 Week 16 vs OAK (3 / 3 / 61 / 0 rec)
Copper has really emerged since Orton took over. He was left out to dry by his QB on a 6 yard catch and was lit up by a LB but held on to the ball. His 43 yard reception was almost all Orton as it was Orton's play fake and look off that left Copper wide open for the grab. He did show good concentration on his 10 yard grab at the end of regulation with a DB diving in front of him. He also showed good awareness to get up the field and then out of bounds.
2011 Week 17 vs DEN (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Copper's one catch came at a big time, a 13 yard cross that was more run than catch. The play also led to a penalty which gave the Chiefs a first down on 1st and 15 and helped them run more time off the clock.
2010 Week 5 vs IND (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Copper got the start and even got an end zone target, but mostly he just showed why he makes his living as a special teamer.
2010 Week 9 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Copper had a nice catch and run and got held in the end zone to set up a a first and goal, but he is just a bit player in the passing game.
2010 Week 10 vs DEN (8 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Copper was perhaps a surprise benefactor of the pass heavy offense of the Chiefs, but really was only able to take advantage of a prevent style defense employed by Denver. He had most of his catches late when the game was long decided. He displayed nice hands and great yards after catch potential, but who knows if he would have contributed at all if the game had not gotten so out of hand.
2010 Week 14 vs SD (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
With the Chiefs passing game struggling mightily the entire first half, Copper provided a small glimmer of hope late in the second quarter. He made a nice grab over the middle that went for 16 yards. Unfortunately, his only other catch of the game resulted in negative yardage and he wasn't heard from again.
2009 Week 3 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Copper had one catch in Week 3 very late in the fourth quarter long after the game was decided. He has no fantasy value at this time as the fourth WR for the Chiefs.
2009 Week 17 vs DEN (2 / 2 / 57 / 0 rec)
The Chiefs came out firing against the Broncos, and their first pass of the day was a 50-yard completion to Copper right in stride down the seam. The Chiefs brought Copper in motion, then play action faked to Jamaal Charles. Copper just streaked up the field and ran right past Brian Dawkins as he came up in coverage, but was peeking in the backfield. Copper also made some plays on special teams, and had one more reception on the day.
2007 Week 3 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Copper did not have a ball thrown his way until the third quarter, so he obviously did not figure strongly in the Saints' game plan. He finished with two catches for 23 yards.
2007 Week 5 vs CAR (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Copper saw very little action.
2007 Week 8 vs SF (2 / 2 / 10 / 1 rec)
Copper was not a big part of the offense, but did catch a short touchdown pass on a quick pass from Brees.
2007 Week 11 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Copper did not contribute much in this game.
2007 Week 12 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Copper was thrown to twice. He caught one pass for 12 yards to the Carolina 47 yard line. The play resulted in a first down but the drive would ultimately end in a punt.
2007 Week 13 vs TB (1 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)
Copper was targeted one time, catching a four yard touchdown in the first quarter that put New Orleans up 7-3.
2007 Week 15 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Copper had two catches for 29 yards, with a long catch of 21 yards.
2007 Week 16 vs PHI (4 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)
Copper saw limited action in the receiver rotation only when Colston left with an injury.
2006 Week 4 vs CAR (3 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Copper, the former Dallas Cowboy, caught two passes for 30 total yards. The receptions came on three targets, all in the first half. He also returned one kickoff for 17 yards.
2006 Week 8 vs BAL (1 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)
Coppper made a 25 yard reception during the fourth quarter, it was his only target in the game.
2006 Week 10 vs PIT (12 / 6 / 92 / 1 rec)
Copper, normally the fourth WR for New Orleans, got the starting nod in place of injured WR Joe Horn and immediately made an impact catching a 22 yard pass and a three yard touchdown catch on the Saints' first scoring drive. Copper faked an inside route and looped around to his right, where the Drew Brees rollout pass was waiting for him in the back of the end zone. Copper did not have Horn's veteran's presence late in the game, however, when he dropped a 30 yard pass over the middle, and fumbled his next reception at Pittsburgh's 25 yard line with under :40 left in the game.
2006 Week 11 vs CIN (7 / 6 / 87 / 1 rec)
Copper, who started last week in place of Joe Horn, was not the beneficiary in this game when Marques Colston left with an injury. Instead, Copper saw only a handful of extra targets while Devery Henderson put up the big stats. Copper had a costly fumble on his first reception of the game, though it didn't cause the team to stop looking his way. He caught two more first half passes, and added another three in the second half (including a touchdown and a 21 yard reception in garbage time). Copper nearly added a second score on the last drive of the game when he hauled in that 21 yard pass down to the nine yard line (the same pass that put QB Drew Brees over 500 yards for the game), but time expired before the Saints could get another play off.
2006 Week 12 vs ATL (3 / 1 / 48 / 1 rec)
Copper saw his first target at the start of the second quarter on a third and five. QB Drew Brees hit him on a seam route up the right side. Copper made a diving attempt on the play but couldn't come up with the ball. His second target was a Hail Mary on the final play of the first half. Copper timed his leap well pulling in the 48 yard touchdown pass from Brees. The ball went through the hands of multiple Falcons' defenders, but Copper was able to make the play.
2006 Week 14 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Copper only caught one pass for eight yards, but his other target was in the end zone.
2006 Week 15 vs WAS (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Copper's number wasn't called much early on (one first half target) as the Saints threw the ball just 13 times prior to halftime. In the second half, his role increased as New Orleans tried to move the ball almost exclusively through the air at key times. Copper was the targeted player on the final pass of the game, an incompletion in the end zone. Had Drew Brees thrown the ball to Copper's right shoulder, it's likely he'd have had enough room to haul it in. But the ball was a little bit to the left side of the receiver, and CB Shawn Springs was able to get a hand in and knock the ball away to essentially end the game.
2006 Week 16 vs NYG (5 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)
Copper saw three targets in the first quarter. The third one converted a fourth and two on the last play of the quarter. He sat down in the middle of zone waiting for QB Drew Brees to scramble away from the pass rush before making the big play. Copper was targeted deep down the center of the field midway through the second quarter, but he got his feet tangled up with the defensive back and fell before the pass arrived. Copper caught the only pass by a New Orleans receiver in the second half. It was a pass down the right sideline on a blown coverage. Copper got behind the defense alone. Brees rolled out to his side and hit him for the 40 yard completion down to the two yard line.
2006 Week 19 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Copper caught just one short pass for three yards in the first quarter, as his only other target came in the final period, where he was overthrown on a route that took him about 30 yards down the middle of the field. Copper's biggest contribution of the game came where he fell on top of a fumble by RB Reggie Bush, an important recovery amidst several Eagles defenders who were trying to create the turnover.
2006 Week 20 vs CHI (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Copper caught his first target at the start of the second New Orleans drive. At the start of the second quarter he caught a quick out on the right side line for six yards, but was flagged for offensive pass interference because he pushed off. His fourteen yard reception late in the second quarter on third and ten set up the touchdown pass to WR Marques Colston.
2005 Week 12 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Copper had his first reception of the season.
