On Tuesday, Damon Harrison’s long-awaited visit with the Seattle Seahawks will occur. Harrison won’t be alone, however.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, linebacker Mychal Kendricks is set to visit the team, after spending part of the 2018 season and all of 2019 with the Seahawks.
Free agent LB Mychal Kendricks is visiting the Seattle Seahawks today, per source. Chance to reunite with his team from 2018-19.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) October 6, 2020
Seattle had reportedly shown an interest in a reunion earlier in the offseason, without a deal coming together. Kendricks more recently visited the Raiders, but again was unable to reach an agreement on a deal.
With Bruce Irvin on injured reserve and Jordyn Brooks out for a little while longer with an MCL sprain, the Seahawks could certainly use another body—and Kendricks would be familiar with the defense after two seasons in Seattle.
In 2019, Kendricks started 14 games for the team, posting three sacks and 71 tackles. The veteran linebacker suffered a torn ACL in the Seahawks’ regular season finale against the 49ers, but was medically cleared in July.
To answer the inevitable question about Kendricks’ future as it pertains to his legal situation, Field Gulls own John P. Gilbert provided an update on Twitter.

He is currently scheduled to be sentenced next week, but the sentencing for his codefendant Damilare Sonoiki has been rescheduled for January, so don't be surprised if Kendricks' sentencing is pushed back as well. https://t.co/KRZRjpVpNL
