Sentencing for former Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks postponed once again

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

As the NFL offseason continues to move forward, former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks has learned that he will be continued to wait even longer before learning his fate from the justice system. Sentencing in his insider trading case had been scheduled for later in May, however, per a filing in the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania, his sentencing has once again been postponed.

By the time October 14 arrives, more than two years will have passed since Kendricks entered a guilty plea to the charges against him and more than six years will have passed since he and co-defendant Damilare Sonoiki hatched their insider trading scheme in the summer of 2014.

Kendricks remains a free agent as he rehabs from a torn ACL he suffered in the Week 17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. A sentencing date in October likely means that Kendricks would likely be available for the entirety of the 2020 regular season, assuming that the 2020 NFL season happens and that it happens on time.
