Former Cleveland Browns LB Mychal Kendricks signs with Seattle Seahawks

Former Cleveland Browns LB Mychal Kendricks signs with Seattle Seahawks”

They spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing.

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. Kendricks will learn of his fate at a sentencing hearing in December.

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

Kendricks played 15 games for the Philadelphia Eagles a year ago, finishing the 2017 season with 2.0 sacks and 15 tackles.

National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Kendricks' legal situation is under review, and Kendricks is now allowed to sign a contract and participate in National Football League activities, including games.

A week after pleading guilty to federal charges of insider trading, Mychal Kendricks is going to sign with the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle's reasoning is the need for depth. The uncertainty of Wagner may have prompted Seattle's move with Kendricks.

Kendricks, who used tips to acquire more than $1.2 million, has a sentencing hearing now scheduled for January 24, which is four days after the AFC and NFC Championship games.

"Prior to signing Mychal, we were informed that there was a financial situation that he had been involved with in 2014", Browns GM John Dorsey said in a statement when the team released Kendricks.

The 5-foot-11, 240-pounder recorded five total tackles and one sack through three preseason games with the Browns.

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.
