Seahawks Re-Sign LB Mychal Kendricks


Mike Garafolo reports that the Seattle Seahawks have re-signed LB Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract worth around $4 million on Wednesday.

Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading last year, but never profited off it, made immediate restitution, has no criminal record, and is not scheduled to be sentenced until January 24. Reports have said that Kendricks could face between 30 to 37 months in prison based on federal guidelines.

Kendricks, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. He was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $29.896 million contract that included $16.4 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $5.85 million for the 2018 season when the Eagles designated him as a post-June 1 release a few months ago.

The Browns later signed Kendricks to a one-year contract worth a maximum of $3.5 million only to cut him loose shortly after the news of the insider trading charges surfaced.

Kendricks signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks last season and he was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent. 

In 2018, Kendricks appeared in four games for the Seahawks and recorded 20 tackles, two sacks, and a pass defense.
