Free Agent NFL Linebacker Receives 1-Day Jail Sentence

Mychal Kendricks, a free agent NFL linebacker who spent the 2020 season with the Washington Football Team, has received a one-day jail sentence.

Kendricks entered a guilty plea back in 2018 for insider-trading charges. He received a one-day jail sentence, three years of probation and plenty of community-service hours as a result, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Free-agent LB Mychal Kendricks was sentenced today to one day in jail, three years of probation, and 300 hours of community service for his 2018 guilty plea on insider-trading charges,” Schefter reported via Twitter.

Kendricks is now free to resume his NFL career. It’ll be interesting to see how teams approach this. Kendricks is expected to receive interest.

Mychal Kendricks spent the 2020 season with the Washington Football Team, but appeared in just one game.

Prior to his stop in D.C., Kendricks spent two years with the Seattle Seahawks and seven years with the Eagles. In nine years, the veteran linebacker has 548 total tackles, 52 tackles for loss and 19 sacks.

Prior to Kendricks’ sentencing, there were already concerns surrounding his career in football. He dealt with a serious knee injury last year, putting his immediate future in question.

After receiving just a one-day jail sentence, most expect Kendricks to continue trying to play football. If he can stay healthy, he’d be a valuable veteran pickup for teams in need of experience at the linebacker position.
