The Seattle Seahawks just made a... well, let's call it an interesting move.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks was recently released by the Cleveland Browns following pleading guilty to charges of insider trading. The Seahawks don't seem to mind and just want to add talent where needed on their roster, so they're reportedly signing him.

Seattle not likely to waste any time: Kendricks expected to play Monday night vs. Bears.
The Seahawks want to win. Kendricks can possibly help them do it-- at least until he's sentenced in December.
The reality of this signing though is simple, both parties are desperate. There are still some unanswered questions here, but it's really not a good look for the Seahawks at all.

What a time to be a Seattle fan, huh?
