Bears finalist for Jeremy Mincey, who re-signs with Jags

While they are believed to still be a player for Mario Williams, the Bears did make an effort to sign defensive end Jeremy Mincey Tuesday night.

Mincey drew plenty of interest, after notching eight sacks last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. But he ultimately signed a four-year deal worth up to $27.2 million, with $9 million fully guaranteed, according to the Carroll County Times.

On his Twitter account, Mincey wrote, "Chicago!!! What a great organization. But, Gene Smith fought for me in a Very Tough fight....PROUD TO BE A JAG!"

Smith is the Jaguars general manager.

Mincey was originally a sixth-round pick of the New England Patriots. But he was released and ended up with the San Francisco 49ers, on their practice squad. He was signed by the Jaguars in December 2006, and he played in six regular-season games in 2007 and posted one sack.

Last season, in 15 games, Mincey had eight sacks and was among the league leaders in quarterback pressures.
