The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Mychal Kendricks can provide

RENTON Tre Flowers Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — a short-term boost on the field that overshadows the issues of signing a player with a pending jail sentencing in his future.The Seahawks announced the signing of Kendricks on Friday to a one-year deal despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges. It’s an odd situation for all parties involved, but fills a need for Seattle even if it’s just for a short time. Kendricks could make his Seattle debut on Monday night when it plays at Chicago, and the finalization of his deal came after visiting the team on Thursday.Kendricks was not made available to speak with the media on Friday. Seattle coach Pete Carroll is scheduled to address the media on Saturday before the team leaves for Chicago.Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia. His sentencing is expected in January.He signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl title last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, and he was released by the Browns on Aug. 29 after the charges were filed. While Seattle is signing Kendricks to add depth at linebacker, it’s unclear how long he might able to play because the NFL has yet to impose any discipline.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday night the situation is under review and Kendricks is currently allowed to sign and participate in activities, including games.That makes for a strange situation considering Kendricks’ guilty plea.Kendricks’ signing is largely because of injury concerns at linebacker. Seattle is without K.J. Wright after minor knee surgery late in the preseason and he only began running this week. Additionally, All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner is dealing with a groin injury suffered in the opener that kept him out of practice both Thursday and Friday, and his availability for Monday night is unclear.Veteran Duane Brown said Kendricks’ situation wasn’t addressed in any team conversations prior to the announcement of the signing.“I’m not very clued in to the particulars of everything that is going on,” Brown said. “But I know he’s a heck of a player. I’ve competed against him a couple of times when he was in Philly. I know he can be a good addition to our team. Everything else will have to handle itself and let that process play out. We’re embracing him. He’s here now. He’s part of the team.”Federal prosecutors said Kendricks used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals.Prosecutors say his co-defendant, Damilare Sonoiki, was paid $10,000 in kickbacks in the scheme from 2014-2015 David Moore Color Rush Jersey , as well as receiving perks such as tickets to Eagles games and tagging along to a music video shoot or nightclub appearances.Sonoiki had been working as a junior analyst at Goldman Sachs but left the financial field and has most recently been writing for TV shows. An IMDB profile lists him as a former writer on the popular TV series “Black-ish” as well as other movies and TV shows.In a statement released by his lawyer the day he was charged, Kendricks said he was sorry and takes full responsibility for his actions.“While I didn’t fully understand all of the details of the illegal trades, I knew it was wrong, and I wholeheartedly regret my actions,” he said in the statement.Kendricks also claimed he didn’t take any of the profits for himself, but didn’t elaborate on where the money went.“I am committed to repaying all of the funds gained illegally and accept the consequences of my actions.”NOTES: Also not practicing on Friday were WR Doug Baldwin (knee), and starting CBs Tre Flowers (hamstring) and Shaquill Griffin (thigh). … WR Amara Darboah has reverted to the Seahawks injured reserve list. Darboah was waived when Seattle made its final roster cuts. He was signed by New England but underwent surgery on his shoulder/collarbone area after being signed by the Patriots. According to the league’s transaction report, Darboah’s contract with Seattle was reinstated. Darboah was a third-round pick in 2017. Now your fantasy skills and strategic planning are about to be truly tested. There are six teams on byes this week: the Bengals, Cardinals, Colts, Eagles, Lions and Jaguars.You won’t be setting what you feel is a fully solid lineup. That’s why you have to deftly work the waiver wire at all positions.RUNNING BACKSELIJAH McGUIRE https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com , New York Jets (4.3 percent owned): The potential sparkplug is currently on injured reserve as he makes his way back from a foot injury, but he has been practicing for two weeks and could be activated very soon. Rookie Trenton Cannon did not seize an opportunity with Bilal Powell done for the season, as he totaled 22 yards from scrimmage at Chicago. McGuire could get a chance to complement the very inconsistent Isaiah Crowell upon his expected return.DEVONTAE BOOKER, Broncos (11.6): Disappointing rookie Royce Freeman may continue to sit out with an ankle sprain, and Booker made the most of his touches in Week 8, totaling 101 yards from scrimmage. Phillip Lindsay is Denver’s clear lead back, but Booker can catch passes and is worth the waiver add as a bye week plug in point-per-reception formats.JOSH ADAMS, Eagles (0.4): The Eagles running game has been mired in mediocrity this season without the departed LeGarrette Blount and the injured Jay Ajayi. Enter undrafted free agent Adams, who rushed for 61 yards on nine carries on Sunday. A big back with versatility and quickness, he is worth the waiver pickup to see If he can emerge in this situation and add a much-needed element of respectability in the Philadelphia backfield.WIDE RECEIVERSD.J. MOORE, Panthers (10.4): Veteran Torrey Smith sat out Sunday and the rookie took advantage, registering his best yardage total yet (90). Moore will be a very alluring streaming option against Tampa Bay this week Seahawks Customized Color Rush Jerseys , especially if Smith sits again. He is going to push for more playing time sooner or later anyhow, as he can be slippery against defenses in high percentage and key situations. His skill set also adds a needed catch-and-run element to the Carolina passing game.DAVID MOORE, Seahawks (2.7): He should have already been picked up, but obviously fantasy owners needed more convincing that he can be a relevant producer. No more selling points are needed after four TD receptions in his past three games and a 97-yard outing in Week 8. Moore is effectively making the Seahawks forget Paul Richardson, as he has come on as their new downfield threat. He’ll need to generate more consistent yardage totals to be more than a WR4 in fantasy, but he is a terrific bye week replacement.DEVANTE PARKER, Dolphins (21.6): An injury-plagued disappointment for three-plus seasons until his last outing, Parker resurfaced in a big way Thursday night and displayed the sort of promise that has tantalized fantasy owners since he arrived in the pros. In the most inspiring performance of his career so far, Parker caught six passes for 134 yards. Now he faces the highly vulnerable Jets secondary. If you use a free agent acquisition budget for waiver adds, don’t overbid on Parker just because of one game. But if you do land him, matchups with New York and Green Bay next do point to him being a very intriguing streamer.TIGHT ENDSJACK DOYLE (31.9): Many fantasy owners cut a player when he is injured, and while you can’t fault them for doing so in a 10-team league Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts , Doyle should have received strong consideration to remain rostered in 12-team leagues and larger formats. Sometimes it is difficult to keep a player on your bench when bye weeks and other considerations make the roster squeeze tight. Doyle was never reported to be out for the season, so it was smart to stash him. He returned to catch six passes for 70 yards and a TD in Week 8 and even while sharing some targets with Eric Ebron, he should retain TE1 status in PPR leagues. Don’t pass over him as a waiver add just because he is on a bye.ED DICKSON, Seahawks (0.5): A quadriceps issue kept him out of action until Week 8, and then he caught two passes for 54 yards and a TD in his Seahawks debut. Dickson is unlikely to rise above TE2 status, but Russell Wilson will look to his TE in scoring situations and will work him in occasionally enough otherwise to make him a bye week consideration. He’s a rental waiver add if you need one at the position.QUARTERBACKRYAN FITZPATRICK, Buccaneers (6.0): The QB position has enough quality depth that many owners don’t need to trade for one or visit the waiver wire for them too often. But Fitzpatrick has regained the starting job in Tampa Bay and it’s no secret that his defense and lack of a consistently reliable running game will prompt him to fling the ball frequently. It seemed like some time ago that Fitzpatrick opened the season with three 400-yard games, and he is always capable of a stinker outing. But the statistical upside remains very tempting. Just don’t make the potential mistake of starting him over a top-level QB based simply on the other passer having a less friendly matchup. Fitzpatrick’s track record indicates you are always in for a possible roller coaster ride with the journeyman.
