If linebacker Mychal Kendricks plays football in 2019 this might presumably presumably be with the Seattle Seahawks.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday that the Seahawks re-signed Kendricks to a one-three hundred and sixty five days deal around $4 million, per a source informed of the deal.
Kendricks changed into suspended eight games by the NFL after he pleaded responsible to insider trading bills in September. The linebacker changed into lower by the Browns in August after he and co-defendant Damilare Sonoiki were indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud. He signed with the Seahawks rapidly sooner than he pleaded responsible to the bills. Kendricks changed into reinstated in December.
Kendricks’ sentencing listening to for his insider trading case is scheduled for April 4. Criminal insider trading carries a penalty as a lot as 25 years in detention heart. Or now not it is imaginable Kendricks might presumably well salvage a lesser sentence that might presumably well merely allow him to play in 2019.
Kendricks played in four games for the Seahawks, three sooner than lacking time due to suspension, and returned for one tilt in Week 14. The 28-three hundred and sixty five days-long-established suffered a damaged tibia in his return.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll continually glowed about Kendricks’ play in his time with Seattle, and expressed a want to preserve the linebacker’s services and products. With LB Okay.J. Wright hitting free company, Kendricks’ availability will be key for the Seahawks.
With a deal done in Seattle, the ask of whether Kendricks can play in 2019 now awaits a court docket dedication.
