Cleveland Browns OLB Barkevious Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the team are still at odds regarding the player's contract, according to a league source.

Browns rookies are scheduled to report to training camp on Friday, July 19. The Browns are reportedly confident that Mingo will show up on time, although there is uncertainty about whether, in Mingo's case, "on time" means July 25, the first official day of training camp.

Cleveland Browns OLB Barkevious Mingo has been working with the second-team defense in minicamp. ESPNCleveland.com writer Tony Grossi is under the impression that the team will follow the model the San Francisco 49ers utilized with OLB Aldon Smith, who made no starts as a rookie in 2011 but recorded 14 sacks. The Browns apparently don't care to rush Mingo's transition from 4-3 defensive end to 3-4 rush linebacker, especially because of the depth they've accumulated at the position. Mingo's primary responsibilities look to be in the pass rush and some special teams for now.
Fantasy Tip: Mingo doesn't shape up as a great IDP target in his first NFL season, although he could be worth a waiver claim if his role expands.
Thu, 23 May 2013 18:05:21 -0700
Cleveland Browns LB Jabaal Sheard said he believes he can be part of an impactful outside linebacker rotation with LB Barkevious Mingo, LB Paul Kruger and LB Quentin Groves this season. "It's a long game, and you're going to need a rotation throughout, and it's a long season as well," Sheard said. "So definitely we're going to need to share snaps and split it up amongst the four of us. You've got to stay healthy throughout the whole season, so I think that's going to play a big part in how our rotation works."
