Seahawks cut Jermaine Grace to add Mychal Kendricks


The Seahawks made official the signing of linebacker Mychal Kendricks on Friday.

With starting weakside linebacker K.J. Wright still rehabbing from arthroscopic surgery and Bobby Wagner missing Thursday’s practice with a groin injury, Kendricks is expected to play Monday night.

The Seahawks waived linebacker Jermaine Grace with an injury designation to make room for Kendricks’ arrival.

Grace, whom Seattle claimed off waivers from the Browns before the season opener, played six snaps on special teams against the Broncos last week.

Grace played in 11 games as a rookie for the Colts and Falcons last season, making three tackles.

  1. I guess his lawyer can delay sentencing long enough for him to squeeze in another season or two of NFL action?

    Maybe the prosecutor supports him playing so that he will have enough money to pay the fines they will levy on him for insider trading, lol.

    I thought it was kind of weird Cleveland cut him for insider trading. Insider trading hurts more people than things that the league routinely gives multiple game suspensions for like drug usage etc. That being said the public generally doesn’t view it as a serious crime.

    Unfortunately the $1.2 million he made using insider information is no different than stealing $1.2 million from a bunch of different people all at once. The money he made came out of somebodies IRA or retirement account or hedge fund.

    Sadly it occurs all to often.

  2. The league will jump in shortly and suspend him. Probably not by Sunday, but boy does this make SEA look bad. Grab an admitted felon and put him in your starting line-up. Just a matter of time before he is suspended.

  3. The Seattle D has to play so many snaps that players can get fatigued. When a player is tired, it is easier to sustain an injury. The Seattle D has to play so much because the offense cannot sustain drives and the running game (the defense’s best friend) is so weak.

  4. This guy is a huge upgrade from Griffin, Calistro, both rookies with large upside but Kendricks is ready now! Not being sentenced until January, a lot can happen. Look at Ray Lewis’ murder charges. He might get off with community service, returning the money and probation. Because he admitted his guilt, with white collar crime all of the above are frequently used options. Go Hawks!
