Seahawks host linebacker Mychal Kendricks on free agent visit

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

The Kendricks signing is not without some concern, as just last week the linebacker pleaded guilty to charges of insider trading.

Kendricks signed a one-year deal with the Browns prior to his release. 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.

Reports surfaced Thursday that Kendricks, a former Eagles' linebacker who most recently signing with the Browns, was visiting Seattle.

Notwithstanding a legal trouble that could lead to a lengthy jail time, linebacker Mychal Kendricks is on the verge of making a return to National Football League action. He was immediately released from Cleveland, where he had signed a one-year contract in the offseason.

Hurricane Florence Shifts Course, Will Make a 'Grand Tour' of Southeastern States
That happened a year ago when Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 150 centimeters (60 inches) of rain on the Houston, Texas, area. Every coastal city along the Gulf or East Coast of the US is at risk of storm surge , the hurricane center said.

Kendricks, 27, is a six-year National Football League veteran who, prior to Cleveland, had spent his entire career with the Philadelphia Eagles. Browns GM John Dorsey indicated Kendricks lied to the team about his role and involvement in the insider trading scam after the team him as a free agent in the spring.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions.

The 5-foot-11, 240-pounder recorded a team-high eight tackles in last season's NFC Championship against Minnesota and had four in Philadelphia's Super Bowl win.

Kendricks was indicted along with "Black-ish" TV writer Damilare Sonoiki, a Harvard educated former investment banker. He also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went.
