The Seattle Seahawks signed one of their former linebackers, veteran Mychal Kendricks, to their practice squad on Wednesday, the team announced.
Kendricks spent the previous two seasons with Seattle, but was not re-signed while he has rehabilitated from an ACL tear suffered during the team's 2019 season finale, causing the eight-year veteran to miss last year's postseason.
"We were fortunate to get him on our practice squad right now," coach Pete Carroll said. "He's still a free agent and all that but he's on his road to recovery right now, coming back in and proving he can do it."
Last season Kendricks, 30, posted 71 tackles, three sacks and one interception in 14 games (all starts). He started 17 of 18 games he appeared in with the Seahawks over 2018-19.
Originally a second-round pick in 2012, Kendricks spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and earned a Super Bowl ring in the 2017 season.
In 103 career games (91 starts), Kendricks has 548 tackles, 19 sacks, seven forced fumbles and four interceptions.
Kendricks was suspended for eight games in 2018 by the NFL as a result of his guilty plea to federal insider trading changes, which violated the NFL's personal conduct policy.
