The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed free agent defensive end Jeremy Mincey, who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week for being late to a team meeting.
Mincey is expected to be on the practice field Wednesday.
Mincey (6-4, 265 pounds) is a sixth-year player. With the Jaguars, he played 64 regular-season games (40 starts) and totaled 276 tackles and 20 sacks.
Mincey started all 32 possible games for the Jaguars from 2011-12 and recorded 11 of his 20 career sacks during that span.
Drafted by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft, Mincey spent the majority of his rookie year on the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad before being signed to Jacksonville's active roster for the last three weeks of the season.
The Broncos also waived center J.D. Walton on Tuesday.
Walton (6-3, 305 pounds) is a fourth-year center who started 36 regular-season games played as well as two postseason contests for the Broncos after being drafted by the club in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft from Baylor University.
