Falcons' Barkevious Mingo: Lands with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo agreed Tuesday with the Falcons on a one-year deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mingo hasn't lived up to his draft slot (sixth overall in 2013), but he has made 126 regular-season appearances in the NFL, recording 255 tackles and 12.5 sacks while playing at least one full season for six different teams. He logged 390 defensive snaps and 374 special-teams snaps for the Bears last season, finishing with 35 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 16 games. A move to Atlanta could lead to a few more defensive snaps, but the 30-year-old Mingo still figures to line up with the backups at the start of camp.

Bears' Barkevious Mingo: Ends 2020 with 35 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo recorded one tackle in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Mingo was a rotational player, who ended up recording 35 tackles and 2.5 sacks, and, although he was a solid player on the Bears defense, his lack of consistent production made him a marginal IDP option. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Bears' Barkevious Mingo: Will suit up Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo (shoulder) is active heading into Monday's matchup against the VIkings.

Mingo was held to limited participation in practice throughout the week because of a shoulder issue, but he ultimately showed enough in pre-game workouts to get the nod for a crucial divisional clash. The 2013 No. 6 overall draft choice has appeared in all nine games for the Bears this season, starting three times while fielding an average of 26.4 defensive snaps per contest. Mingo's 12 defensive snaps last Sunday against the Titans marked a season low.

Bears' Barkevious Mingo: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo (shoulder) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Vikings.

After a trio of limited practices this week, Mingo's status for Week 10 is still in question. The veteran linebacker has played at least 20 defensive snaps in eight of nine games this year. James Vaughters and rookie Trevis Gipson could handle those reps if Mingo is unavailable.

Bears' Barkevious Mingo: Records a sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo notched a sack and two tackles in the Bears' 17-13 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

With Robert Quinn back in the lineup, Mingo will serve as a rotational pass rusher, making him a low-floor option in IDP leagues.

Bears' Barkevious Mingo: Signs with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mingo should serve in a depth role for defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, who is familiar with Mingo from their time together with the Colts. After recording five sacks with the Browns as a rookie, the sixth overall selection from the 2013 draft has tallied only five more sacks in six subsequent seasons.

Texans' Barkevious Mingo: Shipped to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans acquired Mingo, linebacker Jacob Martin and a future third-round pick from the Seahawks on Saturday in exchange for linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While neither Mingo nor Martin can match Clowney's credentials as a pass rusher, they along with holdover Brennan Scarlett will at least provide the Texans with some stopgap options for the edge spot opposite starter Whitney Mercilus. Mingo appeared in all 16 games for Seattle in 2018 in a rotational role, logging 48 stops, two forced fumbles and one sack.

Seahawks' Barkevious Mingo: Headed for pass-rushing role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll said Mingo is preparing for a pass-rushing role in advance of the 2019 season, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. "Last year it was Sam backer and a little bit of pass-rush stuff, and he never really got to dig in. He can make problems for the opponent because he's so fast and so long, so we will really try to accentuate that, and we'll do that again through camp. We want to really specialize him as a rusher knowing he can play the 'backer spot," Carroll said on the final day of minicamp.

Carroll reportedly wants to get Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks on the field at the same time, so it sounds like Mingo isn't headed for the same starting strongside linebacker role he had in 2018. That Shaquem Griffin is also working at strongside linebacker now suggests there may not be many snaps at linebacker to be had. While it's not clear if he'll have to put his hand in the dirt, Mingo doesn't seem likely to see another 517 defensive snaps like he did last year, though it sounds like he could have plenty of opportunities to post more than the one sack he logged.

Seahawks' Barkevious Mingo: Inconsistent role in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo made 48 tackles and a sack in the 2018 season.

Mingo averaged 32 defensive snaps per game but he recorded 20 or less in four of the last seven weeks, while understudy Jacob Martin saw an increased role. He likely fell below expectations since he isn't a dependable pass rusher and doesn't drop into coverage often. Mingo will likely face additional competition from Martin during the offseason program and training camp.

Seahawks' Barkevious Mingo: Ticketed for crucial role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo likely will play strong-side linebacker in Seattle's 4-3 base defense, while serving as an edge rusher on passing downs,'s Brady Henderson reports.

The sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Mingo enjoyed the best season of his career last year in Indianapolis, piling up 47 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 16 games. He often was asked to drop into coverage on passing downs, but the Seahawks plan to give him more opportunities to get after the quarterback. General manager John Schneider said Mingo was the team's top priority among external free agents, perhaps hinting at a role similar to the one Bruce Irvin occupied from 2013 to 2015. Irvin had 115 tackles, 14 sacks and three interceptions in 42 regular-season games during that stretch, with his versatility allowing him to stay on the field alongside fellow edge rushers Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril (neck). Mingo won't have quite as much competition for snaps, potentially making him a huge bargain on a two-year, $6.8 million contract.

Seahawks' Barkevious Mingo: Inks two-year deal with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo signed a two-year, $6.8 million deal with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Mingo started off slow during his first season with the Colts in 2017, but he appeared to become more comfortable as the year went on and ultimately racked up 33 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles during his final eight games. He'll likely remain in a rotational role with the Seahawks, but it isn't out of the question for him to earn a spot in the starting lineup with a strong showing in training camp. As it stands, the 2013 first-round linebacker only has D.J. Alexander and Paul Dawson to compete with for the starting gig opposite K.J. Wright.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Finishes season strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo totaled 47 tackles (35 solo), two sacks and three forced fumbles in 16 games for Indianapolis in 2017.

Mingo started the season with limited production, but turned things on in the second half of the season with 33 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in the final eight games. The 2013 first-round pick of the Browns enters the 2018 season as an unrestricted free agent and could be an attractive rotational option at outside linebacker for a number of teams.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Earns second sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo had eight tackles (all solo) and a sack in Saturday's loss to the Ravens.

Mingo entered December with a quiet season through 12 games, but over the past three games he's recorded 15 tackles (all solo), two sacks and forced two fumbles. The 27-year-old has a limited history of success, but a matchup against the quarterback-deficient Texans in Week 17 could make him an under-the-radar IDP streaming option for those willing to take a risk.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Gets first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo had three total tackles and a sack in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Mingo has been pressed into a starting role at outside linebacker with John Simon (neck) on injured reserve. He's recorded a sack and forced fumble the past two games, but that probably won't be enough to put Mingo on the IDP radar over the Colts' final two contests of 2017.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Four tackles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo started at left outside linebacker and had four total tackles in Sunday's 13-7 overtime loss at Buffalo. He also forced and recovered a fumble.

Mingo has been pressed into a starting role with John Simon (neck) on injured reserve. He has just two sacks over the last four seasons, so his fantasy IDP upside may be limited.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Set to draw another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo will start his third consecutive game at outside linebacker Sunday against the Steelers, Jake Arthur of reports.

Mingo will get the starting nod due to regular starter John Simon (neck) being ruled out again. The 27-year-old has tallied 12 tackles (seven solo), one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in his two previous starts.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Seven tackles in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo had seven tackles and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 20-14 win at Houston.

Mingo started at outside linebacker for the injured John Simon for a second consecutive game. He's been productive when given more playing time, as he has 11 tackles and two fumble recoveries the past two games.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Five tackles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo had five total tackles, a QB hit and recovered a fumble in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati.

Mingo got the start at outside linebacker for the injured John Simon. He's been productive the past two weeks with Simon out and is a decent IDP option in deep leagues if Simon remains sidelined.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Expected to start vs. Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo is expected to draw the start at outside linebacker in Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, Mike Wells of ESPN reports.

Mingo will fill in for the injured John Simon. He saw increased snaps in the Colts' Week 7 loss to the Jaguars, and appears in line to carry that momentum into Sunday.

Colts' Barkevious Mingo: Increased role in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mingo had four total tackles and two QB hits in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.

Mingo saw an increase in playing time with John Simon leaving with a stinger. Mingo could move into the starting lineup at linebacker next week if Simon is out.
