Browns Send LB Barkevious Mingo To Patriots For 2017 5th Round Pick

Another former Browns first round pick bit the dust Thursday.

Barkevious Mingo – selected sixth overall in the 2013 draft – was dealt to the New England Patriots following 3 seasons that saw him register a total of 7 sacks and provide minimal impact defensively for a 2017 fifth round pick.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the deal.

Mingo appeared in 46 games with 16 starts where he registered a total of 99 tackles and 16 pass break-ups with an interception and fumble recovery.

In May the Browns declined the fifth-year option on his rookie contract making him a free agent after the 2016 season.

Of the six first round picks that the Browns made from 2011-2014, cornerback Justin Gilbert – selected eighth overall in 2014 – is the only one that remains.

    Another Cleveland Brown who was not wanted here but ends up with a highly competitive team where he can likely earn a Super Bowl ring instead of floundering around with the Browns while they broom coaches left and right looking for the magic that doesn’t exist. Ask T.J. Ward of the SUPER BOWL CHAMPION Denver Broncos how bad he feels about getting out of the worse dog and pony show in the NFL.
