After releasing defensive end DeMarcus Ware and seeing him sign with the Broncos, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with former Broncos defensive end Jeremy Mincey.
Mincey’s stint with the Broncos was a short one: He was cut by the Jaguars during the 2013 season and then signed with the Broncos late in the year, playing Weeks 16 and 17 for Denver and then appearing in all three of the Broncos’ postseason games.
There have been questions about Mincey’s work ethic (he was released by Jacksonville in part for repeatedly showing up late to work), but when he’s on he’s a solid pass rusher. In his best season, 2011, he had eight sacks.
But Mincey is no Ware, and replacing Ware with Mincey in the starting lineup won’t improve the Cowboys’ defense.
