OXNARD, Calif.-- With the first training camp practice set for Thursday, Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey was not on Tuesday's team flight to Oxnard because he's seeking an adjustment to his contract, according to multiple reports.
Mincey can be subject to daily fines if he does not report by Wednesday. The 10th-year veteran is entering the final year of a two-year contract worth about $3 million.
Orlando Scandrick missed voluntary workouts in the spring while seeking a contract adjustment, and the two sides came to an agreement before the mandatory minicamp.
In 2014, Mincey had a team-high six sacks for a depleted Cowboys defensive line, and he's regarded as one of the defense's veteran leaders.
With Greg Hardy facing a four-game NFL suspension, Mincey figures to rotate at right defensive end with rookie Greg Hardy to start the season. Hardy is eligible to participate in camp and preseason games, which helps the defense's camp depth if Mincey isn't on the field Thursday.
