Mychal Kendricks agrees to one-year deal with Seahawks


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.

Kendricks signed a one-year deal with the Browns prior to his release. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing.

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

Kendricks was released in May by the Eagles, but signed with Browns during the offseason.

Kendricks first made headlines in late August when charges of insider trading were brought against the six-year National Football League veteran.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions. Seattle played the opener without starting linebacker K.J. Wright due to minor knee surgery in late August, and All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner was an unexpected addition to the Seahawks injury report on Thursday with a groin injury. He recorded 14 sacks, three interceptions and five fumble recoveries in that span.

Kendricks was indicted along with "Black-ish" TV writer Damilare Sonoiki, a Harvard educated former investment banker.

Sonoiki received Eagles tickets and other items as kickbacks from Kendricks, prosecutors said. He also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went.
