Seahawks sign LB Mychal Kendricks despite legal troubles

The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Mychal Kendricks can provide a short-term boost on the field that overshadows the issues of signing a player with a pending jail sentencing in his future.
The Seahawks announced the signing of Kendricks on Friday to a one-year deal despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges. It’s an odd situation for all parties involved, but fills a need for Seattle even if it’s just for a short time. Kendricks, who won a Super Bowl title with Philadelphia in February, could make his Seattle debut on Monday night when it plays at Chicago.
Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia. His sentencing is expected in January.
