Jeremy Mincey’s Super Bowl appearance right on time

Philip Rivers, Jeremy Mincey AP

Perhaps no player in the league has mastered the art of screwing up then falling up quite like Jeremy Mincey this year.

The Jaguars deactivated him for two weeks for repeated lateness, then cut him when he missed a Friday meeting a few weeks later.

His reward was signing with the Broncos, and a trip to the Super Bowl.

I didn’t think I’d be here this year, but I’m here now,” Mincey said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. “I’m just enjoying the moment. It’s a blessing.”

He had no dirty laundry to air against the Jaguars, however, admitting “I was lacking a little focus.”

“I’ll never [say anything bad] about Coach Gus [Bradley],” he said. “He’s a great person and a great coach who stood by his philosophy. He made a decision, and I had to live with it.”

And now, he’s living the dream, filling in for a team in the Super Bowl which was willing to give him a chance to be on time.

    If his reject ex-HC wasn’t the DC for Denver, this never would have happened in the first place. Don’t pretend this move was predicated on talent alone.

    Mincey has always been a hard working player with minimal talent. A work horse who was depressed for recognizing his playing time in Jax was diminishing due to competition and the new regime. It was just an unfortunate situation with the Jaguars.

    Mincey would be out of football if it wasn’t for his good old buddy HACK del rio

    Jack knew what’s up, he scooped pot roast from the jags too immediately after free agency started, hated to lose that guy.

    Great example for young kids. Slack off, show up late to meetings, put your recording studio ahead of your NFL career, and good things will happen!

    From a tarp-covered stadium to the Super Bowl. Not bad.
