Cowboys Add Defensive Linemen Mincey, McClain

Dallas signed DE Jeremy Mincey and DT Terrell McClain on Wednesday



    The Dallas Cowboys got into the free agency mix on Wednesday, signing a pair of defensive linemen.

    According to reports, the Cowboys agreed to terms with former Texans defensive tackle Terrell McClain and defensive end Jeremy Mincey (pictured), who has spent most of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  

    A South Florida product, McClain was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2011 draft, but was in Carolina for just a season before departing for the New England Patriots in 2012. He appeared in only one game for the Pats before moving on to the Texans in October of that year.

    With the Texans in 2013, McClain appeared in 16 games for the first time in his career, recording 10 tackles.  His best season to date was his rookie season in Carolina, when he recorded 16 tackles and his lone career sack.

    Mincey was selected by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2006 draft out of Florida, but didn’t make the team out of camp and didn’t make his NFL debut until 2007, as a member of the Jaguars. He stayed in Jacksonville until midway through last year, recording with 160 tackles and 20 sacks in that span. He finished the year in Denver, where he recorded one tackle in a pair of games.
