Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for insider trading, according to ESPN.

Kendricks was charged with insider trading in August and pleaded guilty in September. He was released by the Browns after they learned of the charge.

Kendricks then signed with the Seahawks a week after he was released and played three games for Seattle, totaling 13 tackles and two sacks.

The linebacker won a Super Bowl with the Eagles last season before he signed as a free agent in Cleveland.

In pleading guilty to insider trading, Kendricks accepted full responsibility. 

“I know I was wrong,” Kendricks said. “I know that I made the decision to accept information, secret information, and it wasn’t the right thing to do.” 

Kendricks allegedly made $1.2 million in the scheme.
