Over the course of the 2019 season the Seattle Seahawks played more base defense than any other team in the NFL. Part of that was obviously because the team lacked a quality nickel cornerback who could carry the load, while another part of it was that the Hawks had a trio of linebackers in Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks that was better than the nickel personnel offered.
That is of note at the moment, as Kendricks had yet to find a new home in free agency this offseason as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL suffered late in the 2019 season. With free agency having started last week, Kendricks was slated to finally learn his fate next week. However, that sentencing has yet again been postponed.

No reason was provided for the postponement, however, a superseding indictment in the case of Mark Wayne Ramsey was filed earlier this month, just three weeks before that case was set to go to trial. It would appear as though that trial has thus been rescheduled, and with both Kendricks and his fellow co-conspirator, Damilare Sonoiki, likely to testify, it is likely the court is working to keep all the dates in alignment.
In any case, it is yet another delay in a process which saw the illegal activity take place in 2014, a guilty plea in September of 2018 and now a slew of delays have pushed sentencing back a couple of months yet again.
