Mychal Kendricks agrees to one-year deal with Seahawks

Mychal Kendricks agrees to one-year deal with Seahawks

The Seahawks are signing linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that Kendricks' agreement is expected to be finalized in time for him to join the Seahawks for their Week 2 Game at Chicago on Monday night.

The Kendricks signing is not without some concern, as just last week the linebacker pleaded guilty to charges of insider trading.

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

Kendricks and Goldman Sachs analyst turned Black-ish TV writer Damilare Sonoiki were indicted August 29 on insider trading charges pertaining to investments made four years ago.

The 27-year-old Kendricks faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in December. The scheme reportedly earned Kendricks $1.2 million worth of profits.

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

Kendricks, who was released by the Cleveland Browns immediately after his indictment on August 29, is considered as a better option than rookie Shaquem Griffin in the position. Last season, Kendricks recorded 77 combined tackles and two sacks.
