Mychal Kendricks moving on to visit Raiders, Browns

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks‘ stay in Minnesota included dinner with his brother Eric and a visit with Eric’s team, but he isn’t signing with the Vikings before meeting at least one other team.

Kendricks told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press that he is leaving Tuesday night for Oakland and a visit with the Raiders. He then plans to visit with the Browns before making a decision about where he’ll spend the 2018 season.

Kendricks told Tomasson that it would be a “dream come true” to play alongside his brother and that Eric is lobbying him to remain in the Twin Cities, but things haven’t progressed to a point where he’s considering an offer from someone higher up in the organization.

“He’s doing all that he can,” Kendricks said of his brother. “He’s let me know what the team’s all about. … But he knows in the end I’m going to make my decision based off the things that are presented to me.”

Kendricks had 77 tackles and two sacks for the Eagles in 2017 and has played all six of his NFL seasons in Philadelphia.

  1. Would be great to be on the same team together. I had someone move and not a day goes by that I don’t wish it was different and that we were still together all the time. I get the feelings but in this case he has to go with who’s gonna pay him the most too. Life takes you where you are supposed to go,even when you may not want it to. Sometimes ya just don’t get the choice.

  2. Great attacking linebacker. Awful in coverage (although I always found it confusing, he has all the tools). Played great during the Eagles Super Bowl run, especially after Hicks went down.

    Good luck to him, wherever he winds up

  3. I’m with you sumkat, he did a nice job last year and it was a team effort to win the Lombardi. Wishing him luck and our WORLD CHAMPION EAGLES… E A G L E S! Woooooooooooo

  4. It seems like CLE is becoming the vogue destination lately. A needed piece for a team with plenty of cap room. Plus a chance to mug on Hard Knocks.

  5. He’s the lesser of the brothers, but he’d be a huge upgrade to the fade D. But so would a ham sandwich.

  6. His position is occupied by a second year player on a lower cost contract that played just fine. Combine that with potential cap issues due to the pending Diggs/Hunter/Barr extensions, it’s hard to believe he’d accept a low price contract with limited playing time, unless he really, really wants to play with his brother. I bet Oakland and Cleveland can offer more money and playing time.

  7. I could dig this signing if it was for cheap cheap cheap. We don’t really have a need for another linebacker. Our needs are more on the Offensive Line, and deph and Defensive Line.

    Football runs great in the Kendrick’s family so I wouldn’t oppose the move as long as the price is right.
