Seahawks, Mychal Kendricks close to signing deal

Mychal Kendricks was released by the Browns after being charged with insider trading

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 pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges.

According to Schefter, Kendricks will play Monday night when the Seahawks take on the Bears at 8:15 p.m. ET.

Earlier reports on Thursday indicated Kendricks was in town on a visit. The Seahawks don't seem to mind and just want to add talent where needed on their roster, so they're reportedly signing him.

Kendricks was released in May by the Eagles, but signed with Browns during the offseason. Kendricks' hearing on that matter is scheduled for January 24. Kendricks allegedly profited almost $1.2 million by using non-public information he received from Damilare Sonoiki, a global investment firm banker, in exchange for $10,000 and a Eagles tickets.

The Browns released Kendricks shortly after he was indicted.

After playing college football for the University of Calfornia, he was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

According to sentencing guidelines, Kendricks faces 30 to 37 months in prison, Schefter tweeted Thursday. He and Sonoiki were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
