Report: Seahawks, Mychal Kendricks close to signing deal

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Kendricks visited with Seattle on Thursday.

Kendricks isn't expected to be sentenced until January 24, and according to Schefter the Seahawks will put him right to work. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges.

Kendricks, who turns 28 later this month, admitted before a federal judge in Philadelphia that he swapped cash, National Football League tickets and access to parties with a Wall Street-connected associate for nonpublic, market-shifting information. Seattle's starting weakside linebacker, K.J. Wright, remains sidelined after having arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and it's unclear when he will return. After being selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Kendricks spent six years in Philadelphia before being released this past offseason. 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. "But he is making progress and feeling pretty good".

"It's always going to be all the way through this first season and into next year is just getting really sharp", Carroll said.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges.

Kendricks started 13 games for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2017 season, finishing with with 73 combined tackles, 2 sacks, and 6 passes defended.

Also facing charges is TV writer Damilare Sonoiki, who has written for the TV show "Black-ish" and previously worked as a Goldman Sachs analyst.

According to the Inquirer, Kendricks said he was pleading guilty "because I know I was wrong".
