Basically, if the Seahawks were to sign him, there's a chance he wouldn't get to spend much time on the field with a possible suspension and a December sentencing hearing hanging over his head.

National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Kendricks' legal situation is under review, and Kendricks is now allowed to sign a contract and participate in National Football League activities, including games. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Kendricks visited with Seattle on Thursday.

Kendircks used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals, federal prosecutors said.

As for Wright, Carroll said Thursday he has begun a running program and was due to work out later in the day but there was no clear timeline yet for his return.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions. Seattle's starting weakside linebacker, K.J. Wright, remains sidelined after having arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and it's unclear when he will return. He's going day-to-day. He ran yesterday, and he's working out again today so - he hasn't done that yet, but he's making progress. Griffin started and struggled last week against the Denver Broncos. "He's feeling pretty good".

"Austin did pretty well and Griff, he had some problems on some stuff", Carroll said. It's a lot to do in a short amount of time.

Kendricks played 15 games for the Philadelphia Eagles past year, finishing the 2017 season with 2.0 sacks and 15 tackles.

Kendricks won the Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles last season before joining the Cleveland Browns, who released him last month after he was charged.
