Mychal Kendricks visits Seahawks

He has pleaded guilty to federal charges of insider trading. But that hasn’t completely derailed his NFL career.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks has visited the Seahawks, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

Kendricks, who entered a guilty plea last week, faces up to 25 years in prison. The NFL has not taken any action that would prevent him from playing, despite language in the Personal Conduct Policy that would seem to apply to situations like this.

The Browns quickly released Kendricks after he admitted to insider trading, even though the Browns apparently knew enough to figure out that he was in some sort of legal jeopardy when signing him.

Meanwhile, a certain player whom the Seahawks and other teams could use as a backup (or starting) quarterback continues to be shunned, even though he neither has been accused of nor admitted to any wrongdoing of any kind.

  1. Why inject Kaepernick into this? The Seahawks just traded for a #2 QB, Brett Hundley from GB and have a Rookie as #3….focus on football…and not some bs agenda.

  2. That’s right. All Kaep did was run through the entire NFL in 2012 and should have won that SB had coach Harbaugh not thrown 4 straight pass attempts to WR Crabtree from inside the 5 yard line. Folks have a short memory. Darned millenials!

  3. Says something about your linebacker core outside of Wagner if you could consider signing a guy that can be on his way to prison

  4. Regarding Kaep, maybe it’s because he has aligned himself with militants like Linda Sarsour and Assata Shakur. Nobody wants to deal with his nonsense on a daily basis just to have a backup QB. Get serious for God’s sake.

  5. I really hope someone signs him just so this ends. It’s just so annoying. Kaepernick chose to bring his off the field aims to the football field. When a team thinks about signing him, they are accounting for off the field ramifications. Kaepernick started the snowball.

    If someone signing him removes him from being a constant storyline, then I beg all the nfl teams- someone please sign him.

    I have a long memory. I remember the 49ers benched him for poor performance.

  7. Colin Kaepernick never had a season where he passed for a 60 percent completion percentage, he took Alex Smith’s team to that SB and then failed after the phony blackout that helped him, and his record following that season was pathetic. Kaepernick sucks and doesn’t deserve a job.

    You must get your facts straight from the Donald’s fake tanned mouth. Kaep was good the year after the 9ers went to the superbowl as well. Remember, they made it to the NFC Champ game and lost to Seattle? Am i wrong or did the 9ers make the NFCCG the year after they went to the superbowl?

    His record the following season was 11-5, when they lost a heartbreaker of a NFC Championship game to the referees, err- I mean Seahawks at the end of the 2013 Season. If you’re thinking of the season following that, yeah he was ONLY 8-8 before Jed Yuckin Fork decided to jettison the best coach he’d hired to that point in his adult life. But you must be thinking of the NEXT season, when Jim Tomsula (Greatest coach in the history of coaches) decided to play Blaine (insert adjective) Gabbert over an INJURED Kaepernick – who subsequently went to IR halfway through the season. After 3 surgeries and rehab, Kaep took that job back from Gabbert and had (statistically) a better year than half of the QB’s in the league, despite throwing to #1 receiver (and future first ballot HOF) Jeremy Kerley. But yeah, he was pathetic.

    Speaking of pathetic, here’s a list of active QB’s who have won more playoff games than Kaep:

    Brady
    Brees
    Rodgers
    Wilson
    Ryan
    Flacco
    Manning
    and Steeler QB who likes to prey on women

    But yeah, besides that, you’re totally on point.

  11. So the way to get people to read your kaep opinions is to sneak them into articles not pertaining to him? I really enjoy this site, but stunts like that make me want to look elsewhere for football coverage.

    I would rather have a player guilty of insider trading, DWI, fighting, speeding, PED or making moonshine than Kaperneck or a kneeler

    Wow, just wow. The ignorance in this sentence would be baffling except for the proof that this type of stupidity is rampant in our country is sitting/tweeting in the oval office.

    Truly makes me sad that we’ve come to the point that people will accept someone endangering and ending lives thru DWI than a peaceful protester. Regardless if you agree with what hes protesting or how he went about it, he did so peacefully and under the laws of the country and the flag you are so supposedly protective of.

    Kap can’t sign with anyone. That would look weird in his collusion case.
    ******************

    Which exactly why he had his GF sabotage his deal with the Ravens. (Imho)It was lose-lose for him. If they offered a contract his collusion case went right out the window. He would have to sign and play or refuse to sign and look like a complete fraud.

  14. Nice rant Heywood! Even have some valid points. I would like to point out a couple of things for the sake of clarity. First off, he was still eating meat last time he was in the playoffs. Since then he has lost 30 pounds of muscle. Subsequently when he came back looking like a strung-out Squidworth who couldn’t throw the ball past 30 yards, he started acting out. After he walked away from his contract, Seattle was one of the only teams to give him a look. They even expressed interest in signing him as a backup for backup money. He refused, saying it was a non-starter (shout out to Big Puhn).

  15. Dude, you should know by now that NFL fans would take back an abuser, a woman beater, a drunk, or a drug addict before they’d take back a guy who could probably start for the Bills, Browns, Jaguars, or Cardinals with NO criminal record. American history should have taught you that Americans typically get their panties in a bunch when the topic of black history(which they know little about) and racism(which they know even less about) comes up

    As to the last part of your article, many of us look at disrespecting the flag as a crime. And one that is worse than what Kendricks did.

    ——————-

    Yet many of you in that camp seem to ignore draft dodging as a form of disrespecting the flag. A blatant double standard.

  17. Kap is a limited non traditional QB in a passing league. He is good for 180 yrds and 1 td and 1 int a game passing. Takes nearly 3 sacks a game and is a fumbler. And if you want him as a backup, you have to change the offense to run first with the limited throws he can make. You think he can run russ Wilson’s offense? No. Harbaughs hs offense sure. He is what he is.

  18. Amendment I.
    Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or ABRIDGING the FREEDOM of SPEECH, or of the PRESS; or the RIGHT of the PEOPLE PEACEABLY to ASSEMBLE, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Reading is … Fundamental!

    Fundamental: Forming the necessary base or core; of central importance.

    Reading, as well as learning of The Constitution and what it entails both begin in Kindergarten, yes at approx 5 years of age through 12th grade. So, to me it should and does mean that the vast majority of commenters here must be aware that it’s Kaep’s, Malcom’s, yours, mine etc.inalienable right to express ourselves peacefully in order to be within the bounds of the law/Constitution. This very same right that you all bleed for, would and will die to protect’ is the right that you would deny those that “peacefully” attempt to speak their minds on clear injustices that grips our cities.
    And unlawfully arrest,detain and harass those who are being viewed buy some police officers as guilty before proven innocent!

    None of the facts have anything to do with disrespecting the Flag or US Armed Forces in any way as Trump would have some believe.

    I just wanna read about my team and favorite sport!!!

  19. Man that defense is horrible this year. With Wagner on the injury report with a Groin and Wright out due to a knee, this signing means one or both of them arent coming back anytime soon , they could be without both . Kendricks isnt even good and he’s an admitted felon, great signing.
