Mychal Kendricks to sign for Seattle Seahawks in lifeline for fallen linebacker

Report: Seahawks signing LB Mychal Kendricks, who pled guilty to insider trading last week

Report: Seahawks, Mychal Kendricks close to signing deal

According to Schefter, Kendricks will play Monday night when the Seahawks take on the Bears at 8:15 p.m. ET. The linebacker, who signed a one-year deal with the Browns in June, lasted just two months he was released after the team became aware of his legal issues. The reason that's notable is because even if Kendricks were to sign with the Seahawks, there's a chance he wouldn't be able to finish the season.

A few hours later, Adam Schefter of ESPN followed up with a report of his own, stating that the Seahawks are signing Kendricks to a one-year contract.

The Seattle Seahawks hosted former Cleveland Browns linebacker Mychal Kendricks on a free agent visit Thursday, according to a tweet from NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

While Mychal Kendricks awaits sentencing in December, the linebacker isn't ousted from the National Football League just yet.

Kendricks is set to plead guilty to the above-mentioned charges in December and faces up to 25 years in prison. Kendricks' hearing on that matter is scheduled for January 24.


The Browns released him August 29, after the charges were filed.

Kendircks used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals, federal prosecutors said.

Besides the legal trouble, Kendricks could also be facing a potential punishment from the NFL.

A second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012, Kendricks started 74 games in six seasons with the team. He and Sonoiki were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
