Former Eagle Mychal Kendricks Facing Up to 25 Years in Prison

Former Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks pleaded guilty to federal charges of insider trading on Thursday, according to Philly.com.  

It's been quite a fall from grace for Kendricks. He went from Super Bowl champion to Cleveland Brown and is now facing possible jail time. 

According to Philly.com, Kendricks faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison, although it's likely he won't see that much time if any. Kendricks' lawyer wouldn't say if he would try to get a probation sentence.

Kendricks made over $1.2 million by using illegal inside tips provided for him by his friend Damilare Sonoiki, who worked for Goldman Sachs before becoming a writer on the television show "Black-ish." 

Why did Kendricks plead guilty? 

"Because I know I was wrong," Kendricks said, via Philly.com. "I know that I made the decision to accept information, secret information, and it wasn't the right thing to do."
