Cowboys DE Jeremy Mincey Ends Holdout After Team Increases 2015 Salary


Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram reports that the Cowboys and DE Jeremy Mincey reached an agreement on a new contract, which will put an end to his holdout.

According to Hill, the Cowboys have agreed to include at least an extra $500,000 in terms of salary for the 2015 season.

Ian Rapoport adds that the Cowboys have waived the fined incurred from Mincey’s holdout.

Mincey returned to Cowboys’ practice Sunday, but went through the sessions without pads, as the teams intend to ease him back into it.

It’s good to have him here,” HC Jason Garrett said. “It was a good conversation [he had with Mincey]. We’ll see how he’s doing. …But excited to have him here in training camp.”

Mincey, 31, signed two-year contract worth just $3 million with the Cowboys back in March of last year. He stands to make a base salary of $1.5 million for the 2015 season, but it’s clear that he feels as though he’s vastly underpaid based on his performance.

In, 2014, Mincey appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 37 tackles, six sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. ProFootballFocus has Mincey rated as the No. 17 overall defensive end in a 4-3 system last year.
