Mychal Kendricks visits Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks hosted former Cleveland Browns linebacker Mychal Kendricks on a free agent visit Thursday, according to a tweet from NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. The linebacker, who signed a one-year deal with the Browns in June, lasted just two months he was released after the team became aware of his legal issues. They spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing. 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 first made headlines in late August when charges of insider trading were brought against the six-year National Football League veteran.
