The NFL suspended Seattle Seahawks’ linebacker Mychal Kendricks after he pleaded guilty to insider trading:
Mychal Kendricks played three games with the Seattle Seahawks in 2018, but it might be a while before he sees the field again. Kendricks was reportedly suspended indefinitely by the NFL, according to Field Yates of ESPN.
Kendricks was cut by the Cleveland Browns in August after he was charged with insider trading. He pleaded guilty to those charges a few days later. Kendricks reportedly made $1.2 million off the scheme. When pleading guilty, Kendricks told the judge, “I know I was wrong. I know that I made the decision to accept information, secret information, and it wasn’t the right thing to do.”
Despite the insider trading charges swirling around Kendricks the Seahawks signed him to a deal in September. The 28-year-old had 13 tackles and two sacks in three games with the Seahawks this year.
