The Patriots are loading up at linebacker as they landed Barkevious Mingo from the Cleveland Browns in a trade on Thursday.

Mingo had 29 total tackles in his rookie year of 2013 with the Browns but had just 26 in 2014 and only 15 last season. Mingo did record his only NFL interception last year against the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos and Peyton Manning (see video above).

Mingo was an absolute beat during his time at LSU (as seen in the above video).
