Cowboys say they'll fine holdout DE Jeremy Mincey
The Dallas Cowboys are threatening to fine holdout defensive end Jeremy Mincey $30,000. Mincey is upset about his contract, which pays him $1.5 million last season. “We certainly won’t be talking to him about it while he’s not here,” Cowboys executive Stephen Jones told Dallas reporters“He’s a player who is under contract. We expect all players under contract to be here.” He's the 70th highest paid defensive end. Mincey had six sacks last season, two more in the playoffs.
“Jeremy obviously did a great job for us last year, was a big part of our success on the defensive side of the football,” Jones said. “We have nothing but the utmost respect for him, but he is under contract. I think when he signed that contract last year, his representative was there. He was all for it, and they signed it. It’s not a long-term contract. It’s over at the end of this year.”
