Seahawks to sign LB Mychal Kendricks after guilty plea to insider trading

Mike Davis is dropped by Philadelphia linebacker Mychal Kendricks after a short gain in the 2nd half. The Philadelphia Eagles played the Seattle Seahawks Sunday December 3,2017 at Century Link Field in Seattle. 204424

Seattle plans to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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

Kendricks isn't expected to be sentenced until January 24, and according to Schefter the Seahawks will put him right to work.

Kendricks spent six seasons with Philadelphia before signing with the Browns on a one-year deal in the offseason. In any case, the Seahawks choice to sign a player who is dealing with a legal issue surely raises plenty of eyebrows. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Kendricks visited with Seattle on Thursday. Kendricks' hearing on that matter is scheduled for January 24. The scheme reportedly earned Kendricks $1.2 million worth of profits.

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. It listed Wagner as having a groin injury.

Kendricks can possibly help them do it- at least until he's sentenced in December. He was released by the Browns on August 29 after he was charged by federal prosecutors with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
