It's no secret that free agent linebacker Mychael Kendricks is a quality talent on the field, but he's had trouble finding a job after pleading guilty to insider trading on September 6. The linebacker, who signed a one-year deal with the Browns in June, lasted just two months he was released after the team became aware of his legal issues.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign veteran linebacker Mychal Kendricks, according to multiple reports Thursday night.

He's appeared in 85 games (74 starts) and has 454 combined tackles, 14 sacks and six forced fumbles.

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

Mychal Kendricks was released by the Browns after being charged with insider trading.

Seattle's reasoning is the need for depth.

Kendricks played weakside linebacker for the Eagles, who drafted him in the second round in 2012 one spot before Seattle chose Bobby Wagner.

The Browns released Kendricks shortly after he was indicted.

The 5-foot-11, 240-pounder recorded a team-high eight tackles in last season's NFC Championship against Minnesota and had four in Philadelphia's Super Bowl win.

Sonoiki received Eagles tickets and other items as kickbacks from Kendricks, prosecutors said.

Sonoiki had been working as a junior analyst at Goldman Sachs but left the financial field and has most recently been writing for TV shows.

"Four years ago, I participated in insider trading, and I deeply regret it", Kendricks said via statement. He also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went.
