Mincey announced that he is retiring from football, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The 32-year-old racked up 216 combined tackles and 26 sacks across 96 career games.
Mincey underwent surgery on his right elbow this week, the Dallas Morning News reports.
He has arthroscopic surgery on the same elbow last offseason, but it continues to bother him in 2015. Mincey failed to record a sack in 14 games last season, and may not draw much attention as a free agent as a result.
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, the Cowboys' official website reports.
Mincey's return from a one-week absence should help a Dallas defense that struggled badly against the Falcons last week, but a Sunday night game at the Superdome may still prove rather difficult. With just 40 tackles and six sacks in 18 games since the beginning of last season, Mincey does not warrant IDP consideration.

Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, DallasCowboys.com reports.
The beat-up Cowboys could use him back after their defense collapsed in the second half of last week's loss to the Falcons.

Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey won't report to the start of training camp, according to a report by NFL Network.
Mincey signed a two-year contract with the Cowboys prior to last season. He had six sacks last year and has been looking for a contract extension since February.
Mincey must report by the official start of camp on Wednesday, or he faces fines of up to $30,000 for every day he misses.

On Wednesday, the team tweaked defensive end Jeremy Mincey's role when they moved him in to play defensive tackle, per The Dallas Morning News.
The Cowboys added Greg Hardy and drafted Randy Gregory to bolster the defensive line this offseason. With the newly-added depth, the team is trying out new looks to determine what works best.
“We were working a bunch of different combinations [Wednesday], which was great,” Mincey said. “Randy Gregory is coming along. Really solid pass rusher. They had me and Mr. Kraken (Hardy) here working together. You know what I mean? A lot of good, man. We’ve got a lot of depth, a lot of players you can trust. I think we’ll make some impactful plays for the Cowboys.”
Mincey led the team with six sacks last year.
Cowboys defensive lineman Jeremy Mincey knows that the team will likely draft linemen to compete with him in training camp. He welcomes it.
"The more the merrier," Mincey said, per the Dallas Morning News. "We’ve got enough veteran leadership and presence to help mold these guys and bring the greatness out of them. That’s all I’m about, just bringing the best out of people."
In addition to mentoring any rookies the Cowboys add, Mincy is busy sculpting his physique. He's currently at 280 pounds, 20 pounds lighter than last season. He hopes to drop another 15.
"As you noticed last year I started getting a lot better after six, seven games because I was shedding so much weight," he said. "This season I’m going to start in front of the eight ball instead of behind it."
