Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that the Seahawks are re-signing veteran LB Mychal Kendricks to their practice squad on Wednesday.
The Seahawks confirmed the news and announced that they’ve also signed RB Alex Collins to the unit.
Here’s the Seahawks updated practice squad:
- T Tommy Champion
- QB Danny Etling
- WR Aaron Fuller
- DB Gavin Heslop
- DT Cedrick Lattimore
- TE Tyler Mabry
- DB Jayson Stanley
- WR Stephen Sullivan
- WR Cody Thompson
- T Chad Wheeler
- WR John Ursua
- DB DeMarkus Acy
- DT Damon Harrison
- LB Ray-Ray Armstrong
- LB Mychal Kendricks
- RB Alex Collins
According to Condotta, Kendricks was set to sign with another team, but the deal ultimately fell through.
Kendricks, 29, 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 when the Eagles designated him as a post-June 1 release back in 2018.
The Browns later signed Kendricks to a one-year contract only to cut him loose shortly after the news of the insider trading charges surfaced.
From there, Kendricks signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks in 2018 and returned to Seattle for the 2019 season. He was signed to their practice squad last month.
In 2019, Kendricks appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks and recorded 71 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, one interception and four pass defenses.
Collins, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2016. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.566 million contract when he was cut loose by the Seahawks at the start of the 2017 season.
Collins signed on to the Ravens’ practice squad a few days later and was eventually promoted to their active roster. The Ravens brought him back on an exclusive rights contract for the 2018 season but he was released last year following an arrest and a three-game suspension by the NFL.
In 2018, Collins appeared in 10 games and rushed for 411 yards on 114 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 105 yards receiving and eight total touchdowns.
