Ex-Browns LB Mychal Kendricks signing 1-year deal with Seahawks

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks, released by the Cleveland Browns following charges of insider trading, is signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to the charges. A sentencing hearing is set for Jan. 24.

Kendricks, who signed a one-year contract with the Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl title 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 played weakside linebacker for the Eagles, who drafted him in the second round in 2012 one spot before Seattle chose Bobby Wagner. K.J. Wright, Seattle’s starting weakside linebacker, is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and is not expected to play Monday night against Chicago. Wagner also didn’t practice Thursday with what the team listed as a groin injury.

Rookie Shaquem Griffin started at weakside linebacker for Wright in Sunday’s opener and split time there with Austin Calitro. Coach Pete Carroll’s comments on Tuesday suggested that Calitro could see more playing time in Wright’s absence after Griffin
