Seahawks, Mychal Kendricks close to signing deal

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

The Seahawks are signing linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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

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

Reports surfaced Thursday that Kendricks, a former Eagles' linebacker who most recently signing with the Browns, was visiting Seattle. The Browns released him after he was indicted.

The charges Kendricks pleaded to call for 30 to 37 months of prison time, according to Schefter, but because of his cooperation with prosecutors, Kendricks might not spend any time behind bars. Considering Kendricks is set to be sentenced sometime in December, maybe they're content to see what they can get out of him until then and forget about the optics.

A 2012 second-round pick of Philadelphia, Kendricks made 51 tackles including two sacks in 15 games (13 starts) last season for the Eagles.

National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy said the situation is under review and Kendricks is now allowed to sign and participate in activities, including games.
