Bears Signing OLB Barkevious Mingo To One-Year Deal

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears are singing OLB Barkevious Mingo to a one-year contract on Sunday. 

According to Aaron Wilson, Mingo receives a one-year deal worth $1.187 million, which includes $887,000 fully guaranteed.

Mingo will be reunited with his former HC Chuck Pagano, who is the Bears’ defensive coordinator. 

Mingo, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $16.347 million rookie contract but the Browns declined Mingo’s fifth-year option that would have cost them $11.9 million in 2017.

Cleveland later traded Mingo to the Patriots for 2017 fifth-round pick. From there, Mingo spent a year with the Colts and later signed a two-year, $6.8 million contract with the Seahawks. 

Seattle elected to trade Mingo to the Texans as part of the Jadeveon Clowney deal. 

In 2019, Mingo appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded six tackles and no sacks.
