Mincey was the Jaguars' top pass rusher in 2011 -- Del Rio's final season as Jacksonville's head coach. The defensive end played well enough to earn a four-year, $20 million contract with $9 million in guaranteed money. He recently was released by Jacksonville after several missed team meetings led to his benching.
This is a sensible signing by Denver. Mincey started 32 consecutive games from 2011 to 2012, performing at his best in Del Rio's scheme.
