Jeremy Mincey, who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday after missing multiple team meetings, is happy to be a Bronco. “Oh, man, it feels good — especially since Peyton knew exactly who I was when I walked into the locker room,” Mincey said, via the Broncos official site. “(He) welcomed me with open arms and said, ‘We need a guy like you around,’ and I said, ‘Appreciate it.’ “That made me feel really good, from a guy like that, a guy of that status.” The former Jaguars defensive lineman said the Broncos AFC-leading 11-3 record, and his friendship with several of the players made it an easy decision to choose Denver. “Yeah, I had offers from the Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints. So I wasn’t out in the water drowning,” said Mincey. “I had people throwing rope, and Denver had the best rope and pulled me in. “So I feel a lot better to be playing with guys like Peyton Manning and Terrance Knighton and you know, a whole bunch of good guys, (Robert) Ayers, and I know Shaun Phillips. I’ve just got a lot of relationships. I’ve played with Andre Caldwell in college, and me and Wes Welker worked out together in Miami. It’s a lot of camaraderie here, and a lot of love.”
