Despite the fact that Kendricks is facing up to 25 years in prison, the Seattle Seahawks made a decision to host the talented linebacker for a visit after many presumed that his career would be over following the charges.

A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that Kendricks' agreement is expected to be finalized in time for him to join the Seahawks for their Week 2 Game at Chicago on Monday night.

Kendricks, who turns 28 later this month, admitted before a federal judge in Philadelphia that he swapped cash, National Football League tickets and access to parties with a Wall Street-connected associate for nonpublic, market-shifting information.

Kendricks is signing with the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kendricks first made headlines in late August when charges of insider trading were brought against the six-year National Football League veteran. The Browns released him after he was indicted.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions.

While Mychal Kendricks awaits sentencing in December, the linebacker isn't ousted from the National Football League just yet. Kendricks, who was playing for the Browns on the day McSwain announced the charges, was released by the team just hours after the indictment was announced. It listed Wagner as having a groin injury.

Prosecutors say his co-defendant, Damilare Sonoiki, was paid $10,000 in kickbacks in the scheme from 2014-2015, as well as perks like tickets to Eagles games and tagging along to a music video shoot or nightclub appearances.
