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.
