Mychal Kendricks was recently cut by the Cleveland Browns after being charged with insider training.

It has been a week since Mychal Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading, but that doesn't necessarily mean his National Football League career is over. The linebacker, who signed a one-year deal with the Browns in June, lasted just two months he was released after the team became aware of his legal issues.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges.

Kendricks and Goldman Sachs analyst turned Black-ish TV writer Damilare Sonoiki were indicted August 29 on insider trading charges pertaining to investments made four years ago.

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