Mychal Kendricks denies that he has a deal with the Browns

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks has a deal in place with the Browns. Unless he doesn’t.

In response to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Media that Kendricks will sign a one-year deal in Cleveland, Kendricks told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the report is “not accurate.”

Kendricks also responded to Rapoport on Twitter with this message: “I will never respect you.”

Rapoport’s report was confirmed by Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Of course, it’s possible that Rapoport and Cabot simply have the same source, and that the source is saying something other than what Kendricks is saying.

Kendricks was cut by the Eagles last month. He has visited the Raiders, the Browns, and the Vikings, where his brother Eric currently plays.

  1. Well, let’s be clear

    He decided to opt out of signing with the Vikings, who his brother currently plays for, and signs with the 0-16 Browns instead.

    They have the same chance at winning the super bowl so…

  3. I think the respecting comment is a bit weird seeing how Ian puts out what he gets from sources. It would have made more sense to tell Ian to check his unreliable source(s), unless there is some sort of background story that explains the Twitter slam.

  4. If he signs with this joke of a nfl franchise it will be for green onñy he has his ring fly eagles fly

  5. The Trumping of America. Everybody can say anything they want, anytime they want, and everybody can deny anything they want, anytime they want.

    Just like Comrade Trump.

  6. “You will never have my respect”is what Kendricks really said, attention to detail.

    We are talking about the 1-34 Browns… is that correct?

  8. Cuz he has to shop the offer back to the Vikings. Don’t know why you guys wouldn’t publish that comment the first time. He’s taking the offer from the Browns and forwarding it to the Vikings and saying match this offer. Very obvious.

    Vikes won more games last year than the Browns have the past 4 years combined. Nuff said.

  11. Well, if he signs with the Browns now he’s gonna look pretty stupid. Then again, unless it’s brotherly love, I don’t know why he’d sign with the Vikes anyhow since he’d get paid less and play less.

  12. Pretty clear he is wanting to play with his brother and was gathering offers to come to a deal with MN. It also puts pressure on Barr as both Kendrick brothers could start if Barr is asking for too much money and leaves in FA next year. Vikings covering their backs.

    But they just can’t win the most important One

    38-7

  15. Roppaport like a certain Mike Florio picked against the Birds throughout the postseason, maybe he’s bent about that?

    Kendrick’s reply is odd regardless

  16. Friday afternoon, Hue Jackson jumped in Lake Erie…Later that afternoon, Hue Jax, still soaking wet, hosted visit from FA linebacker Mychal Kendricks…trying to to lure him to sign with the Browns over the competition from Vikings and Raiders….

  17. Trump injected himself into football, which he failed at btw. Bankrupted an entire league in fact. Some of us don’t want to see him do the same to the NFL.

    He tells us he was a great athlete but his cankles kept him out of the draft somehow. He has a good weave though, it stays on his head most of the time.

  18. Mychal Kendricks denies he has a deal with the Cleveland Browns? Who wouldn’t? I’d still deny it after signing the contract. Heck, I might even deny being a Brown for the rest of time. No one can prove it’s him with 100% certainty, right?

  19. sign with the clowns. how great another bum in a sad long list of garbage cleveland clowns players. god when will the bleeding stop with this horrorshow? oh wait, it never will, FOREVER…….!

  20. browns won’t be a playoff team, but they are taking steps towards respectability, they might win 4 games this year. also, it’s easy for us to say don’t go to the highest bidder, we’re not in his shoes. if it were me, i would be seriously considering an offer from oakland where i might be a three down player and have a chance to win. having said all that, i would love to see him sign a one year deal with the vikings, play with his brother in a possible super bowl run, and then try his chances next year at a fat contract.

    If Trump had ever played football, I wonder what position he might have played. Considering the size of his enormous rump, he could have stuffed the middle or clogged the lane (or something) between Big Macs? Glad I never had to actually see that sight. It’s gross enough just thinking about it.

    Body shaming is NEVER okay. But Trump slamming is always okay. I mean he makes it SO easy…

  24. @ Michael E

    Worry about your own political correctness: Anthem hysteria

  25. “Why WHY W.H.Y? Bring politics into sports? Oh, because you were never good at sports…And apparently politics too.“

    OH man I thought it and you said it! High five! You set the tone with a haymaker of a question — he’s definitely reeling — next the rabbit punch logical fallacy (well played sir…) followed by the knockout non sequitor!! THIS ONE IS OVER FOLKS!

  26. I’d love Mychal Kendricks with the Vikings, but unless they have plans to move Barr at some stage this year, he simply won’t see the field often.

    Zimmer likes to play 2 LBs and an extra DB the majority of the time. This is why the Vikings improved their depth at the position by drafting Hughes in the 1st round. The Vikings also have to sign extensions for several key players, so I very much doubt they will be able to offer the most money.

    The Browns are on the rise, but I would have thought that he would be able to get much better than a one year deal – unless that is his choice and they are willing to pay him quite a lot for that year.

    I’m surprised that there are only three teams interested in him, as although he isn’t the very best at his position, he has been reliable and is better than a large percentage of LBs in the NFL. I’m wondering if he has a gentleman’s agreement with the Eagles in that they give him his freedom as long as he doesn’t sign for a team within the division.

  27. “So body shaming is politically correct only if leftists do it.”

    I’d say it’s…presidential. Sorta like your perceived double standard indignation. Even if you actually made a valid point (standing tall for your xenophobic, grabbem by the ahem, birther closet racist orange haired hero that says it like it is! Right?) the nutjob right hilariously shields themselves with a bible preaching preaching preaching. Yeah, the left is just a bunch of hypocrites, please. You think you’re angry, y’all pretend to be upstanding godly folk, we’ll keep doing J-Mans real work like fighting for socialized healthcare, failing against the KKK, and this imbecile of a pre-pre-pres…

    Not that politics have anything to do with this thread but do you assume that everyone who dislikes Trump is a “leftist”? Meaning that everyone on the right is so brainwashed by their party that they couldn’t possibly dislike a pathological liar who also happens to be a racist and pervert? Life isn’t that black and white buddy, and there are plenty of people out there like me who would never vote for HRC but still can’t stand the embarrassment to this country that is Trump.

  29. Kendricks is an angry man at the moment. One minute, you’re the starting LB for the Super Bowl Champion Eagles on your second contract, the next minute, you’re unemployed with false rumors that you’re joining the Browns.

    And name calling and pretty much ny other type bad behavior gets rated by a double standard. If a person tells themself that their partisan bias is ‘standing for decency’ the sky is the limit.

  31. A good player who thinks he’s worth way more then he is. The other knock on him is he won’t play with minor soft tissue injury’s that other player will.

  32. sign him up Browns, I live in OHIO now and love to watch ex Eagles play with the browns. In the Right D and mindset this guy can make the pro bowl. We beat the Pats in the super bowl. man it never get’s old typing that. : ) super bowl champs !!!!!

  33. When did Kendricks become one of the best LBs such that his signing with any team makes them better? He was invisible most of last 2 years on Eagles, couldn’t get on field much even with LB injuries as they play 2 LB and 3rd safety a lot. He was a malcontent who had one good year under Chip Kelly, got an obscene contract, and under-performed thereafter.

  34. I’m always curious why a team that knows they will cut a player wait until the end of May to do it. Everything i have read says he was due 7+ million this year and there was no way the Eagles were going to keep him. Keep him on the roster to screw him over? Did they try to negotiate a lower deal? If the ladder is true shame on the Eagles. I hate the Cowboys keeping Bryant as long as they did was wrong.

  35. Kendricks signs with Browns…Hahaha
    So I guess he was mad that people found out he was going to play in Cleveland..He was probably hoping to get GTD money than fake an injury so NOBODY would ever know he actually signed with Browns!

    But it’s not false…He has officially signed with The Browns

  37. The question came from a Vikings reporter and the question came BEFORE he reached the agreement. So obviously, he’s going to say that is not accurate because it was not accurate at the time of the question. Vikings reporters were just trying to give their fans a little hope. Sorry, he’s with the Browns now and they have depth at defense across the entire board now.

    And yet, with all of those wins, the Vikings pulled a epic choke job when it really mattered. Nuff said.
