Barkevious Mingo will sign one-year deal with Colts


Outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo will sign with the Colts, NFL Network reported Thursday.

A first-round pick of the Browns in 2013, Mingo was traded to the Patriots last summer and played as a special teamer and situational pass rusher for the Super Bowl champions last season.

Per the report, Mingo will make $2.5 million on a one-year deal with the Colts, who figure to be active in trying to upgrade their defense and specifically their pass rush.

All seven of Mingo’s sacks came in his first two seasons. He played in all 16 games and started one last season for the Patriots.

    How can such a disappointment get $2.5 million? He’s a special teams player.

    Closest the Colts will get to a ring for a long time πŸ™‚

    I still think it’s interesting that the Colts haven’t even made the playoffs since they were caught using illegally underinflated footballs in the 2014 AFC Championship game. What an odd coincidence. πŸ™‚

    Seems to be a good kid and he is a good special teams player. Does not complain. Unfortunately his natural athletic talent does not seem to translate beyond special teams but he can make a good living at that.

    He made a couple decent plays when he first go to New England, but never seemed to pick up the defense or fit in. Very fast but didn’t play up to his potential.

    He better change that fast or this will be his last NFL payday in all likelihood.

    Colts love those discarded Browns for some reason.

    Colts just signed him so they could see what a SuperBowl ring looks like.

    He got his ring. Now he wants a participation banner. That’s cool.

    A significant upgrade to the special teams unit known for the swinging gate play—good signing

    Wow how would I have guessed that the majority of the comments are from patsie trolls? They spend more time on Colts articles than theirs. Get a life already. Oh, and we have a super bowl ring, guess what, it’s not tainted. Did the deflator ever lose his weight?

    First of all look in the mirror as you frequently comment on Patriots news, pretty much with the same tired “cheaters bs”. You could at least come up with something new. And last time I checked Mingo was a Patriot so we are commenting on Patriot news. Some of you people really amaze me.

    Are you sure about that? Yeah, me neither.
