Notwithstanding a legal trouble that could lead to a lengthy jail time, linebacker Mychal Kendricks is on the verge of making a return to National Football League action.

Not only is Seattle signing Kendricks, he is expected to play for the team on Monday night against the Chicago Bears, per Schefter.

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.

Field Yates of ESPN earlier reported that Kendricks had visited the Seahawks on Thursday.

LB Mychal Kendricks, released by the Browns following charges of insider trading, is signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, per sources. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges. The Browns released him after he was indicted.

Kendricks spent six seasons with Philadelphia before signing with the Browns on a one-year deal in the offseason. His sentencing is for January 24.

He had a team-high eight tackles with the Eagles in last season's NFC Championship game against the Vikings and four in Philadelphia's Super Bowl 52 victory.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions. Kendricks reportedly made a profit of about $1.2 million by paying Sonoiki in cash as well as with Eagles tickets. He and Sonoiki were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
