Browns' Barkevious Mingo: Option declined by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkevious Mingo 's fifth-year contract option was not picked up by the Cleveland Browns , reports.

Mingo has managed just seven sacks in three seasons since being the sixth overall pick in 2013, so it's no surprise that the Browns declined his option, which would have paid him around $12 million in 2017. As a result, Mingo will become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming campaign, when he'll aim to improve his pass rushing numbers with the help of about 20 pounds of muscle added this offseason.

Browns' Barkevious Mingo: Bulks up to 260 pounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkevious Mingo has bulked up from 240 pounds to 260 pounds,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

The sixth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Mingo showed some promise with his five-sack rookie season, but he has just two sacks in 31 games over the past two years. He'll primarily be competing with Paul Kruger and Nate Orchard for snaps at outside linebacker, but the Cleveland Browns may also add more talent in the upcoming draft. Mingo apparently hopes that the added weight will help him shed the 'bust' label in the final year of his rookie contract.
