American defensive back Jonathon Mincy already has five NFL workouts set up.
Sources say more NFL teams want to get in on the action and are working on the details. Mincy could be the most coveted DB since Delvin Breaux three years ago when well over 10 teams worked out the current Saints defender who was New Orleans top defensive player in 2015.
Mincy played boundary corner for Montreal in 2017 where many of the best wide outs in the CFL line up each week. He was targeted 6.2 times per game in 2017 and he allowed a 64 per cent completion rate and 42.3 yards per game, leading the league in those categories (statistics via Onside CFL Fantasy host Dave Dawson).
The 25-year-old has played 32 games for the Alouettes in two seasons, making 108 tackles, three interceptions and forcing three fumbles. After the 2016 campaign, Mincy was named Montreal’s Most Outstanding Rookie and he was named an East Division all-star in 2017.
When Mincy came out of Auburn University he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons in 2015, but got released among final training camp cuts. He signed with Montreal in May 2016.
