Broncos add former Jaguars problem Jeremy Mincey

Defensive end Jeremy Mincey started the year on one of the worst teams in the league, but was cut just as they were getting better.

Now, he’s found his way onto one of the best.

The defensive lineman who was just released by the Jaguars has agreed to terms with the Broncos, according to Jeff Legwold of

The Jaguars left him home from one road trip and deactivated him from another game for violating team rules, including missing meetings. After he returned to the field, they eventually cut the expensive mistake of the previous regime.

Mincey had some success under Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville, so the Broncos defensive coordinator may be able to convince him to show up on time for a playoff run. He’s been a productive pass-rusher in the past, and any amount of that the Broncos can find is going to help given their recent struggles in the secondary.

    Pass rush has been one of the things missing on this team in the past few games, just like taking Knighton from Jacksonville, hopefully Mincey can play as well as he did

    Yeah but if he shows up 15 minutes late there’s still a 50% chance that the Broncos are on Offense first and he won’t miss anything. Not that big a deal really.

    Denver has really missed their run stuffers in Derek Wolfe and Kevin Vickerson. They like to rotate their linemen frequently to keep them fresh, and earlier in the season it was resulting in one of the top run defenses as well as a more consistent pass rush. They’ve lost that depth with Wolfe/Vickerson out. Their biggest problems against San Diego was they struggled against the run, not the pass (Rivers finished only 12/20 for 166 yards). If they can get back to early season form against the run, their defense should be fine. Hopefully Mincey will show up and help.

    ask the cowboys how it feels to play without depth

    As long as he makes Brady a grease spot on the Denver field in January, he can skip all the meetings he wants.

    Found his way one of the best offenses anyway. D got exposed.

    When he was cut I thought he’d be a reasonable, low cost, low risk addition for some team in need of depth. (I was thinking Colts, but whatever.) Maybe a different culture can help him screw his head on right. What an amusing irony if he ends up with a SB ring after suffering through an 0-8 start and generally screwing things up for himself. America: land of second chances. Sometimes 3rd, 4th, etc.

    Looking at stats you might think it was all run defense. Between the penalties and timely 3rd down passing, they also shot themselves in the foot in this game.
    In regards to run defense, it was poor, lack of disengaging and persuing, combined with lack of safety run assistance created an overall appearance of a team playing their B game, not their A game.
