Jeremy Mincey DL DEN 3 Months
Broncos signed DE Jeremy Mincey.
Mincey was waived by the Jaguars last week due to poor play and violations of team rules. Perhaps a reunion with old coach Jack Del Rio -- now the defensive coordinator in Denver -- will get him back in line. Mincey is 30 years old now, but had 13 sacks between 2010-11 while playing for Del Rio in Jacksonville.

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey won't play in Week 12 due to a violation of team rules.

Jaguars DL Jeremy Mincey has been medically cleared from his concussion.

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey has missed the last few days of practice with a concussion.
Mincey was originally diagnosed with a "head contusion" over the weekend, but a neurologist changed that evaluation Monday. Coming off a three-sack campaign, Mincey has been demoted out of the starting lineup in coach Gus Bradley's new 4-3 hybrid scheme. He'll likely miss Friday's preseason opener.

The Jaguars intend to use DE Jeremy Mincey as an inside-outside rotational pass rusher this season.
Coming off a terrible season, Mincey has been demoted in the sense that he's no longer a starter -- Tyson Alualu is the new left end and Jason Babin the RE or "Leo" -- but the Jags still have plans for him. "We have a role for Mince, and we'll use him in a variety of fashions," GM David Caldwell said. "He has some inside pass-rush skills and he has some outside pass-rush skills."

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey attributes his disappointing 2012 production to playing too many snaps and consequently wearing down.
Jacksonville had zero depth. "When you're playing 80 snaps, no man to man [defense], can't score any points, that's what happens," said Mincey, whose sack total fell from eight in 2011 to three. "I think [the new staff] went back and watched the film, and you can't blame it all on me. I did what I could. I played hard." Mincey may still not return as a starter in 2013.

DE Jeremy Mincey played all 59 defensive snaps in the Jaguars' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.
Mincey was asked to carry the load with Austen Lane (foot) and George Selvie (knee) sidelined. He had just three tackles and no sacks, a disappointment for IDP owners using him as a DL2. Expect a bigger day against the Texans this week as both Lane and Selvie are out again.

Jaguars signed DE Jeremy Mincey to a four-year contract.
Mincey was reportedly drawing heavy interest from the Bears, but has opted to stay with the club that gave him his first start in 2010. Since joining the Jaguars' starting lineup in Week 10 two seasons ago, the 2006 sixth-round pick has notched 12 sacks in 24 games. Mincey's re-signing could be a sign the Jaguars aren't planning to seriously pursue free agent Mario Williams.

The Bears are "trying to sign" free agent DE Jeremy Mincey, according to the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times
The Browns also reported to be interested. Early signs point to Mario Williams signing in Buffalo, leaving the Bears with a fallback option at defensive end. While Mincey showed a high motor last season, five of his eight sacks came in two games against the Colts' injury-depleted O-Line.
