Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey has had an interesting journey in the NFL. He was originally drafted by the New England Patriots to play in their 3-4 scheme, but didN't work out. The Jaguars wound up picking him up in 2006, but he constantly battled injuries. He even battled them last year when he finally broke into the starting lineup. So far this season for Mincey, everything has kind of worked out. He's a full time starter at defensive end and he's playing his butt off, in his contract year.

Come to find out, Mincey also has a new sack song he's given to the stadium operations people to play when he gets a sack. It was debuted on Sunday, when Mincey got his first sack of the season. "Hopefully they start coming. I feel like I try to focus on getting better each game. I got a long way to go. You can expect a lot more out of me hopefully in the future. We're still alive, breathing, the world's not ending. That's my goal. I plan on having a big year," Mincey told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

You're a mean one, Mr. Mince

You're as ruthless as can be

You eat quarterbacks for money

But break running backs for free

You're a mean one, Mr. Mince

As I mentioned, Mincey is one of a handful of Jaguars who are in a contract year that the team will have to make a decision on. While Mincey isn't racking up the sacks on the stat sheet, like former Jaguars defensive end Bobby McCraydid one season, Mincey is constant in getting his pressure. He's always been a constant pressure guy, which has always lead me to compare him to another former Jaguars player in Paul Spicer. Spicer didn't get a lot of sacks, but he help cause them. It will be interesting to see if and how much the Jaguars pay Mincey if his play continues.
