07:26 AM ET 11.22 | What has Barkevious Mingo done lately for the Browns? [Mingo] has only one sack in his last six games, and defensive coordinator Ray Horton has called on him to step it up. "I expect a lot from him, and I'm challenging him off the field -- meaning extra stuff to study and do more for us," said Horton. Horton stressed that he's happy with his outside linebacker, but that he needs a nudge through that rookie wall that occurs at this time of year when their college seasons would be winding down. "I'm throwing a lot more at him this week also to be accountable," said Horton. "We put a lot on the young man, and he"s playing different positions for us. After Week 10 or 11, it's an extended season for rookies. So it"s a big factor for us to gauge him how he's doing in the workload and the home life and all that stuff."

Face it. He's no Kiko Alonzo. What a shock. The Browns suck at the draft. (and on many other levels as well)

What? Work hard? This is the NFL he should be working harder on his choreographed sack dance.

Clay Matthews has "The Predator".
Suh has the "Head Smack/Roar/Flex".
Suggs has "Flexing/Being A Badarse/Looking Like A Tough Guy" dance.
DeMarcus Ware has the "Kane Dance???
Heck even a boring white guy has a Discount Dabble Check dance.

Work harder LOL.

The DC is getting pretty greedy. Isn't bringing the name Barkevious to the dog pound enough?
