RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed linebacker Mychal Kendricks in a one-year, $4 million deal, according to a report.
NFL Insider Mike Garafolo first reported the news Wednesday afternoon, citing a source.
Seattle signed Kendricks in September of 2018 after he had been released by the Cleveland Browns.
Kendricks played in four games last season with the Seahawks, recording two sacks and 20 tackles.
Kendricks was out for the season after suffering a knee injury in a Monday Night Football game in December. It was his first game back with the team after an eight-game suspension by the NFL for the insider trading. He could still face prison time as his sentencing is scheduled for April 4.
“It’s just been such a difficult season for Mychal,” head coach Pete Carroll said at the time. “My heart goes out to him. He wants to be a part of this thing so badly.”
