Mike Iupati to sign with the Seattle Seahawks

LB K.J. Wright will reportedly return to play for the Seahawks in 2019

According to the Tacoma News Tribune, "sentencing guidelines in federal court in the eastern Pennsylvania suggest 2 1/2 years for Kendricks' crime".

Iupati, who has played left guard exclusively throughout his eight-year National Football League career, becomes the favorite to start at that position.

Bringing back Fluker is an important signing after losing J.R. Sweezy in free agency. The Seahawks understand and value what Wright, the team's longest-tenured defensive player, means to the development of a young defensive roster and even while injured for much of previous year, he helped the defense.

Interestingly enough, this is Iupati's third team - all from the NFC West. Iupati will be 32 years old when the 2019 seasons starts.

Keeping Fluker means Sweezy is the only starting offensive lineman the Seahawks will not return from last season.

A source had indicated to PFT on Wednesday night that Wright was moving toward reaching a deal after becoming a free agent for the first time in his eight-year career.

Kendricks missed all of October and November due to a suspension stemming from insider trading charges, then suffered a season-ending knee injury in his return on December 10.

The huge negative, however, is that Iupati has gotten injured a bunch over the last two seasons. Wright is expected to be fully recovered from the knee injury that limited the linebacker to just five starts for the Seahawks in 2018.
