The Bears hit one pitch out of the park early on in the free agent period, trading for troubled but talented wide receiver Brandon Marshall, but they fell short on the one prize of free agency they really wanted, defensive end Jeremy Mincey, as he has reportedly signed a four year contract to stick it out in Jacksonville instead.
According to Scout.com’s Aaron Wilson, the deal is for $27.2 million, with $9 million guaranteed.
Mincey, 28, was drafted by the Jaguars in 2007 and has since compiled 103 tackles and 15 sacks in 40 games played.
