Defensive end Jeremy Mincey is hanging up after nine seasons in the NFL. The 32-year-old announced his retirement on with a lengthy post on Instagram, where he thanked his fans, former teams and coaches.

“I want to thank the Patriots organization for getting my foot in the Door. The 49rs [sic] for giving me a shot. The Jaguars for grooming me. The Broncos for the Super Bowl experience and the Dallas Cowboys for exploiting my Talents on and off the field.”

PITY THE NINERS: 49ers sign Christian Ponder to a one-year deal. Not content with one bust QB from the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the 49ers added Daryl Johnston Jersey a second.

SIEMIAN HAS A SHOT: Trevor Siemian could really be the Broncos starting quarterback. Trevor Siemian is making a serious run at Mark Sanchez in the race to replace Peyton Manning.

ANOTHER BLOW FOR THE BILLS DEFENSE: Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended four games by NFL. It’s bad news for a Bills defense that has already been hit hard by injuries. Meanwhile, Manny Lawson is facing one-game suspension, too. The 32-year-old linebacker has been accused of domestic violence.

GRONK IS BRUISED: Rob Gronkowski is dealing with a bruise. The All-World tight end left Monday’s practice and was not on the field yesterday because of the injury.

OLYMPIC MOMENT: Robert Quinn is in Rio to watch his sister run the hurdles in the Olympics. Pretty cool moment for the Rams defensive end.

ARIANS HOSPITALIZED: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians taken to hospital in San Diego. He was feeling ill and having stomach pains. The feeling is that it’s nothing major and he’ll be back to work and dropping F bombs soon enough.
