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

Field Yates of ESPN earlier reported that Kendricks had visited the Seahawks on Thursday. They spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges. After being selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Kendricks spent six years in Philadelphia before being released this past offseason. Browns GM John Dorsey indicated Kendricks lied to the team about his role and involvement in the insider trading scam after the team him as a free agent in the spring.

Besides the legal trouble, Kendricks could also be facing a potential punishment from the NFL. Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner popped up on Thursday's practice report with a groin injury.
