Report: Seahawks re-sign Mychal Kendricks

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

When soon-to-be free agent Mychal Kendricks’ sentencing was delayed in mid-January until April 4, it seemed to all but end his hopes of playing in 2019. That may still be the case, depending on how Kendricks’ sentencing goes. But if he does play in 2019, it will be with the Seattle Seahawks.

Shortly after the new league year officially began on Wednesday, the Seahawks and Kendricks reportedly agreed to a one year deal worth approximately $4M, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Kendricks’ return to Seattle meshes with Pete Carroll’s message since the team was eliminated from the playoffs in January, that the team wanted to have Kendricks back. Now, depending on his sentencing, they will.

Though the Seahawks figure to add another linebacker, whether it’s in the draft or free agency, Kendricks’ new deal has an obvious impact on K.J. Wright’s chances of returning to Seattle. As of Wednesday afternoon, Wright remains unsigned, and Gregg Bell of The News Tribune hinted on Tuesday the Seahawks may have been priced out of the race for his services.
