Kendricks is the same player who pleaded guilty to an insider trading charge two weeks ago.

ESPN first reported Kendricks' deal with the Seahawks.

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. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia, but his sentencing is not expected to take place until January.
