While Mychal Kendricks awaits sentencing in December, the linebacker isn't ousted from the National Football League just yet.
The beleaguered linebacker is facing up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to insider trading earlier this month. The reason that's notable is because even if Kendricks were to sign with the Seahawks, there's a chance he wouldn't be able to finish the season. He was immediately released from Cleveland, where he had signed a one-year contract in the offseason. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia, but his sentencing is not expected to take place until January. 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.
Reports surfaced Thursday that Kendricks, a former Eagles' linebacker who most recently signing with the Browns, was visiting Seattle. Kendricks will learn of his fate at a sentencing hearing in December. Kendricks reportedly made a profit of about $1.2 million by paying Sonoiki in cash as well as with Eagles tickets.
A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions
Early on Sunday morning, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will rematch one another in the biggest boxing match of 2018. Instead, Alvarez, in an uncharacteristic move, charged at Golovkin and pressed his forehead against GGG's.
Kendricks played 15 games for the Philadelphia Eagles a year ago, finishing the 2017 season with 2.0 sacks and 15 tackles. He and Sonoiki were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions.
