He is in his prime .... bring him in and tell him we are going to sign him up on June 1. He fits the new philosophy of not going after over the hill players.

Eagles released SLB Mychal Kendricks. Kendricks was designated as a post-June 1 release, clearing $6 million in cap space while leaving behind $1.6 million in dead money. The move comes after the Eagles (again) failed to find a trade partner for their two-down thumper. Kendricks wanted to play all three downs. Going on 28, Kendricks had one of his best seasons in 2018. Provided he's healthy — Kendricks is recovering from an ankle scope — he won't be on the open market for long. Linebacker is a position of need for the Eagles. May 22 - 3:43 PM



Now, this is a little interesting and hard to understand. They asked him to take a pay cut even though he played very well. Now, they are saying he didn't fit Schwartz's defensive scheme. Burke is from Schwartz' coach tree.

Eagles SLB Mychal Kendricks said he asked the team to trade or release him back in January.The Eagles declined Kendricks' request. Kendricks doesn't have much of a role in DC Jim Schwartz's defense as the third linebacker. Perhaps the Eagles are holding onto Kendricks in the event WLB Nigel Bradham is suspended following his July 4 battery charge settlement

The Dolphins looked closely at Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks two years ago before acquiring Kiko Alonso in a trade that also brought Byron Maxwell from the Eagles to Miami.

As colleague Armando Salguero reported previously, the Dolphins weren't interested in Kendricks at that time, instead preferring Alonso.

The Dolphins – and the rest of the league – now have another chance to sign Kendricks, who was surprisingly released by Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Kendricks – who can play all three linebacker positions in a 4-3 defense like Miami's – was released after declining to take a pay cut, according to NFL writer and Sirius XM host Adam Caplan, who said Philadelphia tried to move Kendricks, but found no takers for a contract that had two years left and would have paid him $5.85 million in base salary in 2018.

Pro Football Focus rated Kendricks the ninth-best linebacker in the league last season – 13th against the run and 26th against the pass.

He had 77 tackles, six passes defended, two sacks, 16 pressures and just one touchdown allowed in coverage for the Super Bowl champions last year, appearing in 15 regular-season games and starting 13.

He started all three playoff games last season and had four tackles in the Super Bowl victory against New England.

Kendricks, 27, started most of the Eagles’ games over the past six seasons and had three interceptions, 14 sacks, six forced fumbles and 459 tackles.

Based on his body of work, Kendricks would seem an upgrade over any potential veteran third linebacker that Miami has on its roster to start alongside Alonso and McMillan – a group that is highlighted by Stephone Anthony and Chase Allen and also includes Mike Hull and veteran offseason addition Terence Garvin.

As soon as I heard about this I was literally yelling in my Jeep "Snatch him up right now, Tannen-Grier!"

Have we had him in for a look yet? He wants a contract by the end of the week, but Suh's money doesn't drop off until Saturday. If he were 35 years old and his talent was fading, I am sure 'Baum would have had him in already with a huge contract offer.

:saywhat

Free agent LB Mychal Kendricks has left his Vikings visit without a contract. Kendricks' brother Eric featured prominently in the Vikings' recruiting efforts, but he's still slipping out without a deal. Kendricks will next visit the Raiders. If he escapes Oakland, it will be to Cleveland. Kendricks hopes to have a decision by the end of the week.
