RENTON, Wash. | Seahawks sign LB Mychal Kendricks despite legal troubles
RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks have signed linebacker Mychal Kendricks despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges.
The Seahawks announced the signing Friday, raising the possibility Kendricks will be able to play on Monday night when Seattle plays at Chicago. Kendricks visited with the Seahawks on Thursday and a deal was agreed upon.
Kendricks’ signing is largely because of injury concerns at linebacker. Seattle is without K.J. Wright after minor knee surgery late in the preseason, and Bobby Wagner is dealing with a groin injury suffered in the opener that kept him out of practice on Thursday.
