It’s a one-year deal for Mingo, per Rapoport, who should at the very least provide a boost for Atlanta’s special teams unit.
Mingo, 30, 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 a 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. He played out his contract in Houston and signed a one-year deal with the Bears in 2020.
In 2020, Mingo appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 34 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two pass defenses.
