Ex-Cowboys and Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey has retired from the NFL after 10 seasons.
Going on 33, Mincey spent the past two years in Dallas. He was a 16-game starter in 2014, but was primarily a reserve last season. He underwent minor elbow surgery in February, and made no-known visits in free agency. It was the right time for the 2006 sixth-rounder to hang it up. Aug 23 - 6:26 PM

Date:

Free agent DE Jeremy Mincey underwent an elbow scope on Tuesday.

He should only be sidelined 3-4 weeks. Mincey had the same procedure last offseason. After leading the Cowboys with six sacks in 2014, Mincey came back and didn't record a single one this past season. His snaps were cut from 813 the year before to 386. Mincey will be in light demand at age 32.
Feb 17 - 9:12 AM

Cowboys DE Jeremy Mincey has cleared the concussion protocol.

He is expected to play this week against the Saints. With Mincey back and Greg Hardy almost finished with his four-game suspension, the Cowboys pass rush should be in good shape for New England next week.

Cowboys DE Jeremy Mincey (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Mincey's absence will leave Dallas with just three healthy defensive ends against Atlanta, as Randy Gregory (ankle) is also out, and Greg Hardy's suspension won't end until Week 5. It's a slight upgrade for Devonta Freeman.
Fri, Sep 25, 2015 03:23:00 PM

The Cowboys have agreed to give DE Jeremy Mincey a raise.

It's believed to be a $500,000-or-so raise after Mincey fell 11 snaps shy of a $500,000 playing-time bonus last year. The Cowboys have also waived Mincey's fines for not reporting to training camp on time. Mincey will likely open the season as Dallas' starting defensive end opposite Demarcus Lawrence before settling into a rotational role when Greg Hardy's suspension ends.

Cowboys DE Jeremy Mincey ended his holdout and reported to training camp on Sunday morning.

The Dallas Morning News said the holdout isn't officially over yet, though Mincey's appearance at camp would suggest otherwise. Mincey tried to send the Cowboys a message by skipping the first few days of camp but predictably gave in when faced with $30,000 a day fines. Mincey will earn $1.5 million this season before hitting free agency in 2016.

Cowboys DE Jeremy Mincey skipped the team's flight to training camp as he aims for a new contract.

Mincey is scheduled to make $1.5 million in the final year of his two-year contract. He led the Cowboys in sacks and pressures last season and fell 11 snaps shy of earning a $500,000 bonus. The 31-year-old appears to want some guaranteed money and a boost to his salary. With the Cowboys adding RE Greg Hardy and second-rounder Randy Gregory and expecting a leap from LE Demarcus Lawrence, Mincey may see his snaps reduced a bit this season.

Cowboys RE Jeremy Mincey has been working at defensive tackle during OTAs.

Mincey led Dallas with six sacks last year, but is a candidate to move inside with the additions of Randy Gregory and Greg Hardy. The Cowboys are desperately looking to reduce DT Nick Hayden’s snaps, and playing Mincey at one-technique would get him and Gregory on the field at the same time. Mincey should rush the passer from multiple spots this season.

Cowboys RE Jeremy Mincey underwent surgery to remove bone fragments from his arm on Wednesday.

It's not an operation that should affect Mincey's status for the offseason program. Now 31, Mincey's six sacks led the Cowboys this season. Due a bargain-basement $1.5 million, he'll be back for 2015.

Cowboys RE Jeremy Mincey (concussion) has been cleared to practice Friday.

He's expected to play Sunday after being concussed in the Wild Card win. It's amazing what Cowboys DC/DL guru Rod Marinelli has been able to do with guys like Mincey, LE George Selvie, and DT Tyrone Crawford. Mincey graded out as a top-10 pass-rushing 4-3 end at Pro Football Focus this season.
Fri, Jan 9, 2015 11:58:00 AM

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.
Tue, Jul 8, 2014 11:41:00 AM

Cowboys signed DE Jeremy Mincey to a two-year, $4.5 million contract.

Mincey, 30, got into hot water for rules violations in Jacksonville last year and found himself waived in December. The Broncos picked him up, and he served as a rotational end during their Super Bowl 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. He'll have a chance at significant snaps.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 02:15:00 PM

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.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 10:45:00 AM

Jaguars waived DE Jeremy Mincey.

Mincey, who turns 30 Saturday, signed a four-year, $20 million contract in March of 2012 after he recorded eight sacks in 2011. In 24 games since, Mincey has registered just five sacks. He was inactive for Weeks 12 and 13 due to a violation of team rules. Couple that with poor play, the Jaguars decided to cut ties. Tyson Alualu and Jason Babin will continue to man the end spots for the Jags.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 10:57:00 AM

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.
