NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL, according to a report from NFL insider Field Yates.

Kendricks pleaded guilty to charges of insider trading last month. As a result, the 28-year-old linebacker is potentially facing up to 25 years in prison.

It’s been quite the year for Kendricks. Let’s recap.

In February, he won the Super Bowl with the Eagles. Philadelphia then released him on the first day of OTA practices in May. Kendricks ended up signing with the Browns after being cut by Philly. Then Cleveland released him when the news of his crime broke. Kendricks didn’t spend too long as a free agent before being picked up by the Seahawks, who were clearly desperate for linebacker help. Kendricks was allowed to play for Seattle while his appeal was being processed.

All of that brings us to Kendricks’ current situation, where he is now banned from the league for an indeterminable amount of time.

In addition to being suspended by the NFL, Kendricks is obviously still subject to legal punishment. His sentencing for insider trading is set to take place at the end of this year.
