2018 NFL free agency: Jaguars interested in LB Barkevious Mingo

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly interested in free agent linebacker Barkevious Mingo from the Indianapolis Colts, according to Mike Kaye of First Coast News.

In 16 games last year, Mingo had 47 tackles, 2.0 sacks, and three forced fumbles.

According to Kaye, if Mingo is signed he’d likely play SAM and force Paul Posluszny into a backup role or retirement.

I still think drafting someone for that SAM role would be a good idea, but with Mingo the team has a lot of players who could compete for that position — but second-year linebacker Blair Brown is probably the frontrunner after Posluszny.
