NFL free agency rumors: Seahawks agree to new terms with OLB Mychal Kendricks

Mychal Kendricks injury update: Seahawks LB reportedly done for season with broken tibia

The Seahawks are sticking with Mychal Kendricks.

According to a report from the NFL Network, which cited unidentified league sources, Seattle and Kendricks have agreed to a one-year deal for around $4 million.

Kendricks played in four games (three starts) for the Seahawks last season. He was acquired by Seattle after being released by Cleveland on Aug. 29, after being charged by federal prosecutors with insider trading.  

Kendricks’ 2018 season was plagued with injury and suspensions. The NFL suspended Kendricks for eight games under its personal conduct policy stemming from his guilty plea to federal insider-trading charges. 

He played three games in September and again in December before breaking his tibia.

Kendricks’ sentencing was originally scheduled for early 2019 but it was pushed back to April.

Prosecutors have accused Kendricks of profiting more than $1 million from July 2014 to March 2015 on non-public information provided by investment banker and co-defendant Damilare Sonoiki, who received $10,000 and game tickets from Kendricks, who played for the Eagles at the time.

Kendricks was selected by the Eagles in the second round (46th overall) of the 2012 draft. He played six seasons with Philadelphia before a brief stint in Cleveland.  

He has 477 total tackles in his career to go with 16 sacks and three interceptions.
