The Denver Broncos have agree to terms with veteran defensive end Jeremy Mincey, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.
The Jacksonville Jaguars decided to waive Mincey, who was originally a sixth-round pick of the New England Patriots, last week.
The Broncos talked to Jaguars general manager David Caldwell before coming to terms with Mincey and hope Mincey can enter their rotation up front. They will have to make a roster move to formally add him.
Derek Wolfe has not practiced since suffering what the Broncos called “seizure-like symptoms” on the team’s Nov. 29 bus ride to the airport for the trip to Kansas City.
The Broncos could move Wolfe to injured reserve, but as of Monday team officials were still hopeful he could return for the postseason. Wolfe recently began working with strength and conditioning coaches.
Mincey, who had 16 tackles and 2.0 sacks, is expected to practice with the Broncos for the first time on Wednesday.
Over Mincey’s six-year career, he has 160 tackles, 40 sacks and six forced fumbles.
