Well, you can forget about Barkevious Mingo moving to safety.
When the Cleveland Browns brought defensive coordinator Ray Horton back for 2016, he indicated that the coaches had a plan for the fourth-year linebacker, and that they would see whether he was up to the challenge they set forth for him. It appears as though one of those challenges was a commitment to bulking up. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Mingo has increased his weight from 240 pounds to 260 pounds.

Offseason workouts for the Browns begin this Monday, April 4th. The Browns also published an article Tuesday afternoon, pumping up the "hybrid" defender's chance for a bigger role this year. What do you think, Browns fans? How do you anticipate Mingo's role changing with him adding 20 pounds?
