When defensive end Jeremy Mincey signed with Denver last month, he couldn't believe defensive tackle Terrance Knighton had tried to ditch his nickname ''Pot Roast.''
''I'm like, `Dude, that's a great name. Like, it makes you seem colossal,'' Mincey recounted.

When defensive tackle Terrance Knighton came over to the Broncos from Jacksonville this season, he attempted to shed his long-time nickname, Pot Roast.
His former Jaguars teammate Jeremy Mincey respects that, he says. Now that he's a Bronco, he too wants to lose not only his former nickname — Mr. Mince — but also the negativity that dogged his final months in Jacksonville...
Jeremy Mincey played for Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio in five seasons during Del Rio’s tenure as Jaguars head coach.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran defensive end Jeremy Mincey, who was inactive for two games last month after showing up late to a team meeting.
