Denver Broncos have moved to strengthen their injury-hit roster with the addition of free agent defensive end Jeremy Mincey, reports

The former Jacksonville Jaguars star will be reunited with Jack Del Rio at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High, who is now working under head coach John Fox as the Broncos' defensive coordinator.

Mincey was recently released by the Jaguars after missing several team meetings, which also led to his benching.

However, disciplinary problems permitting, the 30-year-old should prove to be an astute signing for the AFC West franchise.

He started 32 consecutive games for Jacksonville from 2011 to 2012, and seems to excel under Del Rio's defensive scheme.

In order to make room for Mincey, the Broncos waived center J.D. Walton, and will be hoping that the lure of the playoff chase will be enough to refocus the unsettled eighth-year veteran for the remainder of the 2013 season.
