2 years, $6.8 million, $3.2 million guaranteed.
Yeah, I don’t know what to make of this. Mingo is a bust who likely will play some strong-side linebacker as well as rush the passer off the edge. His career sack numbers have been pretty pathetic for a guy drafted so high in the first round in 2013. Zero expectations here.
In other news, Paul Richardson got a huge deal with the Redskins, DeShawn Shead got a less huge deal with the Lions, Jimmy Graham got a medium deal with the Packers (who had to let Jordy Nelson go to make room), and a bunch of other players were either tendered or non-tendered. A couple of big names coming back are Dion Jordan and Justin Coleman, so that’s cool I guess.
Not a lot of big moves in free agency for the Seahawks, except for all the people leaving. To be expected. I said it before and I’ll say it again: I want the Seahawks to be as inactive in free agency as possible this year. Particularly when it comes to veteran running backs.
