It was not long ago that the Seattle Seahawks resigned Mychal Kendricks, agreeing to terms on a one year contract that offered nothing in the way of guarantees for Kendricks should he be unavailable for the 2019 season. Obviously, the reason Kendricks may not be available for the 2019 season is that he could be in prison after having pled guilty to insider trading back in September, and for which a sentencing conference had been scheduled for next Thursday, April 4, 2019.
However, as of today the sentencing hearing for Kendricks has been postponed indefinitely as the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has cancelled the hearing without setting a date for sentencing in the future. The sentencing hearing for Damilare Sonoiki, the other party with whom Kendricks conspired, has also been pushed back to mid-July, so this may or may not be specific to Kendricks’ situation.
In any case, the uncertainty regarding Kendricks will remain for the foreseeable future.
