Ex-Browns LB Mychal Kendricks signing 1-year deal with Seahawks


Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday that the contract is for one year. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Kendricks visited with Seattle on Thursday.

A week after the news broke, Kendricks pleaded guilty to charges meaning he could spend up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in December.

It has been a week since Mychal Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading, but that doesn't necessarily mean his National Football League career is over.

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.

Kendricks signed a one-year deal with the Browns prior to his release.

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

As for Wright, Carroll said Thursday he has begun a running program and was due to work out later in the day but there was no clear timeline yet for his return. He's going day-to-day. He ran yesterday and he's working out again today, so he hasn't done that yet. Carroll's comments on Tuesday suggested that Calitro could see more playing time in Wright's absence after Griffin found himself out of position a few times against Denver.

Prosecutors said Kendricks netted close to $1.2 million in profits off the trading during his two-year arrangement with a former Goldman Sachs analyst.

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

A second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012, Kendricks started 74 games in six seasons with the team.
