Relocating to Houston, absorbing a new playbook, meeting new teammates as he gets acclimated to the Texans’ locker room and his fifth NFL team, it’s been a lot for veteran outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo.
Mingo was traded to the Texans along with outside linebacker Jacob Martin from the Seattle Seahawks for franchise player Jadeveon Clowney and a third-round draft pick.
“It’s been a pretty hectic week, getting a different playbook, being able to come in and practice with the guys, but it’s been great getting here, getting acclimated and just getting back to football,” Mingo said. “Just terminology. Word meaning different things, but once you get to translate all that kind of stuff you can marry up old terminology and new terminology and it makes things run even faster.”
Mingo is a former Cleveland Browns first-round draft pick from LSU. He has also played for the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts.
