Mincey has certainly been an overlooked in recent years and was actually rated by Pro Football Focus as the #12 best 4-3 defensive end last season.
To this point, Jacksonville hasn’t made any progress towards a long-term contract with Mincey so he figures to be fielding offers in the coming days.
We have Mincey listed as the #6 best free agent in out New Top 50 Free Agents List.
“I think he has a huge upside,” Metzelaars said, via BuffaloBills.com. ”A lot of people don’t give him credit for his blocking, but I think he does that very well and can still get better at it. I look forward to developing him [into] the every down player we would like for him to be.”
Last week, Buffalo signed Chandler to a two-year contract but he isn’t exactly the best weapon in the middle of the field. The Bills should him to create mismatches in the red zone last year so it will be interesting to see if his role expands in the teams’ offense now that they committed to him for the foreseeable future.
WGR 550 Buffalo mentions that the Bills do have interest in retaining SS Bryan Scott.
The report adds Scotts agent has confirmed that the two parties have had ”recent contract talks” and believes that something could be done before the start of free agency next week.
