Jeremy Mincey DL DAL 1 month ago

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey did not report to the beginning of training camp as he seeks a new contract, according to the Dallas Morning News. Mincey, who led the team with six sacks last season, is set to make roughly $1.5 million in base salary this year. The 31-year-old holds little leverage at the moment, as he is in the final season of his contract and his role is likely to greatly diminish following the team's offseason acquisitions of Greg Hardy and Randy Gregory to boost the pass rush. It is unclear whether Mincey is seeking a multi-year extension or would simply like a pay raise after last season's efforts, and the team has yet to issue a statement on the matter. Players and coaches flew to California on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's training camp commencement, and it is unclear when Mincey will join them.

Mincey will undergo elbow surgery on Thursday, but isn't expected to miss any offseason activity, David Helman of reports.

He led the Cowboys with six sacks in 2014 and didn't miss any games, so this news is a little surprising. Mincey should still be an important cog in the team's defensive line rotation next season.

The Dallas Morning News doesn't expect DE Jeremy Mincey to be a starter for the Cowboys.

Mincey inked a two-year, $4.5 million deal with the Cowboys in March and was viewed by some as DeMarcus Ware's replacement. Entering his age-31 season and tallying just five sacks the past two seasons, Mincey will compete for a reserve role. Maybe DL guru Rod Marinelli can help coax a big year out of Mincey like he did with penciled-in starter George Selvie last season.

The Cowboys are nearing a deal with free agent DE Jeremy Mincey.

Mincey, 30, got into hot water for rules violations in Jacksonville last year and found himself waived in December. The Broncos picked him up, serving as a rotational end during their playoff run. Mincey hasn't posted more than three sacks in a season since 2011, but the Cowboys are desperate to just add bodies to their paper-thin defensive line.

Broncos signed DE Jeremy Mincey.

Mincey was waived by the Jaguars last week due to poor play and violations of team rules. Perhaps a reunion with old coach Jack Del Rio -- now the defensive coordinator in Denver -- will get him back in line. Mincey is 30 years old now, but had 13 sacks between 2010-11 while playing for Del Rio in Jacksonville.

He'll be back on the field Monday. Mincey is trying to earn a spot in what the Jags hope will become a deep defensive line rotation. Tyson Alualu, Roy Miller, Sen'Derrick Marks, and Jason Babin are already locked into major roles.

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey has missed the last few days of practice with a concussion.

Mincey was originally diagnosed with a "head contusion" over the weekend, but a neurologist changed that evaluation Monday. Coming off a three-sack campaign, Mincey has been demoted out of the starting lineup in coach Gus Bradley's new 4-3 hybrid scheme. He'll likely miss Friday's preseason opener.
