Former Texans linebacker Barkevious Mingo has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears, according to a report from NFL Network. 

Mingo, 29, played in every game for the Texans last season, mostly on special teams, after being acquired from the Seattle Seahawks as part of the Jadeveon Clowney trade. 

The former first round pick played just 73 defensive snaps with the Texans, but made an impact, blocking a punt that was returned for a touchdown in the Texans Divisional round loss in Kansas City. 

The Bears will be the sixth team Mingo has played for in his NFL career, joining the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Seahawks and Texans.
