Seahawks Signing LB Mychal Kendricks Despite Guilty Plea for Insider Trading

The NFL has not yet announced any punishment that it might impose on Kendricks.

Earlier reports on Thursday indicated Kendricks was in town on a visit.

Seattle plans to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. And while that's notable in and of itself, what's even more notable is why he is available in the first place - he was released by the Cleveland Browns after he was charged with insider trading, something he pled guilty to last week. Kendricks allegedly made investments on business enterprises back in 2014 based on information illegally shared by former Goldman Sachs employee turned TV writer Damilare Sonoiki.

In a statement , the Celtics expressed sympathy towards the victim, and said they are helping authorities with the investigation. The woman told police she was able to leave after Bird passed out with "seizure-like" symptoms.

According to sentencing guidelines, Kendricks faces 30 to 37 months in prison, Schefter tweeted Thursday. He could have been looking at a 25-year jail time, but he's likely to get a much shorter one thanks to his decision to admit guilt. The Seahawks don't seem to mind and just want to add talent where needed on their roster, so they're reportedly signing him.

The Browns released him from the team on August 29, after the charges were filed. Griffin started and struggled last week against the Denver Broncos.

Kendricks spent six seasons with Philadelphia before signing with the Browns on a one-year deal in the offseason.
