Linebacker Mychal Kendricks was recently released by the Cleveland Browns following pleading guilty to charges of insider trading.

Earlier reports on Thursday indicated Kendricks was in town on a visit.

According to Schefter, Kendricks will play Monday night when the Seahawks take on the Bears at 8:15 p.m. ET.

The Kendricks signing is not without some concern, as just last week the linebacker pleaded guilty to charges of insider trading.

Everything to expect from Apple’s iPhone event
Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones along with the rumoured Apple Watch 4 series, iPads and Homepods on September 12. Apple is expected to unveil new iPhones on Wednesday - and leaks from China are already giving us hints of what's to come.

Kendricks can possibly help them do it- at least until he's sentenced in December. Kendricks allegedly made investments on business enterprises back in 2014 based on information illegally shared by former Goldman Sachs employee turned TV writer Damilare Sonoiki.

Kendricks signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl title last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Seahawks have yet to confirm the Kendricks signing and this story is continuing to develop. Kendricks allegedly profited almost $1.2 million by using non-public information he received from Damilare Sonoiki, a global investment firm banker, in exchange for $10,000 and a Eagles tickets.

Kendricks, who was released by the Cleveland Browns immediately after his indictment on August 29, is considered as a better option than rookie Shaquem Griffin in the position.
