Free-agent LB Mychal Kendricks, in a brief phone interview, denied a report he's reached agreement to sign with the Browns. "No, it's not accurate. That's all I have to say. I'm not really talking about it.'' Kendricks wouldn't comment on whether the #Vikings are still in the mix

The Cleveland Browns will be signing linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year deal, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday afternoon. Kendricks played with the Philadelphia Eagles for the first six seasons of his NFL career.
Sources: The #Browns are signing free agent LB Mychal Kendricks to a 1-year deal, bolstering their linebacking group late in the offseason. Along with Jamie Collins and Christian Kirksey, it could be one of the most talented in football.

Kendricks has played in 85 games in his career, missing a high-mark of four games back in 2014. He’s piled up 338 tackles, picked off three passes for interceptions, and has recovered five fumbles. He also has 14 career sacks that he earned with the Eagles.
The defending Super Bowl Champion is 27-years old and will help strengthen a ridiculously-talented linebacking core of Jamie Collins, Christian Kirksey, and Joe Schobert.
