Report: Seahawks, Mychal Kendricks close to signing deal

Seattle Times sports writer Bob Condotta noted that in addition to injured KJ Wright, fellow linebacker Bobby Wagner showed up on the Seahawks injury report Thursday.

The beleaguered linebacker is facing up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to insider trading earlier this month.

It has been a week since Mychal Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading, but that hasn't stopped his 2018 season.

Kendricks, who signed a one-year contract with the Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl last season with the Eagles, used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals, federal prosecutors said.

Kendricks, 27, is a six-year National Football League veteran who, prior to Cleveland, had spent his entire career with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kendricks isn't expected to be sentenced until January 24, and according to Schefter the Seahawks will put him right to work.

"It's always going to be all the way through this first season and into next year is just getting really sharp", Carroll said.

As for Wright, Carroll said Thursday he has begun a running program and was due to work out later in the day but there was no clear timeline yet for his return. We'll see how he goes. "But he is making progress and feeling pretty good".

A week after the news broke, Kendricks pleaded guilty to the charges.

Veteran defender Mychal Kendricks is excited to be a part of the Cleveland Browns' linebacker corps.

He's appeared in 85 games (74 starts) and has 454 combined tackles, 14 sacks and six forced fumbles.

Kendricks and Goldman Sachs analyst turned Black-ish TV writer Damilare Sonoiki were indicted August 29 on insider trading charges pertaining to investments made four years ago.
