Jeremy Mincey DL DAL 5 Months

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.

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey won't play in Week 12 due to a violation of team rules.

It's not clear what team rule Mincey violated, but he'll miss Sunday's game for disciplinary reasons. Ryan Davis will pick up the majority of his vacated snaps. Undrafted rookie DT Abry Jones could also be active this week.

Jaguars DL Jeremy Mincey has been medically cleared from his concussion.

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.

The Jaguars intend to use DE Jeremy Mincey as an inside-outside rotational pass rusher this season.

Coming off a terrible season, Mincey has been demoted in the sense that he's no longer a starter -- Tyson Alualu is the new left end and Jason Babin the RE or "Leo" -- but the Jags still have plans for him. "We have a role for Mince, and we'll use him in a variety of fashions," GM David Caldwell said. "He has some inside pass-rush skills and he has some outside pass-rush skills."

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey attributes his disappointing 2012 production to playing too many snaps and consequently wearing down.

Jacksonville had zero depth. "When you're playing 80 snaps, no man to man [defense], can't score any points, that's what happens," said Mincey, whose sack total fell from eight in 2011 to three. "I think [the new staff] went back and watched the film, and you can't blame it all on me. I did what I could. I played hard." Mincey may still not return as a starter in 2013.

DE Jeremy Mincey played all 59 defensive snaps in the Jaguars' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

Mincey was asked to carry the load with Austen Lane (foot) and George Selvie (knee) sidelined. He had just three tackles and no sacks, a disappointment for IDP owners using him as a DL2. Expect a bigger day against the Texans this week as both Lane and Selvie are out again.
