CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Browns are trading disappointing linebacker Barkevious Mingo to the New England Patriots for a 2017 fifth-round pick.

The Browns selected Mingo with the No. 6 pick in 2013. The former LSU standout has recorded just seven sacks in three seasons and spent much of last season on special teams.

Mingo's size - 6-foot-4, 240 pounds - and speed have made him intriguing, but none of Cleveland's coaching staffs has found the best way to utilize him. The Browns moved the 25-year-old Mingo from outside linebacker to inside earlier this summer.

Cleveland declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Mingo's rookie contract in May.
