BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo is banking on bigger being better after a rookie year that started fast than sort of fizzled.
He's been bulking up, ready to fit in with the faster and stronger of the NFL.
As the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Mingo made an instant impact for the Browns, flying all over the field and registering a sack in each of his first three games. But just as quickly, he disappeared from the stat sheet, recording only two more sacks the rest of the season.
Mingo, who now weighs in in the high 230s, says he learned a lesson last year that will make him a better player in 2014.
