CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Browns have released LB Mychal Kendricks after insider trading charges were announced against him on Wednesday.

Kendricks, 27, is facing charges after allegedly providing $10K in cash and Eagles tickets in exchange for the inside stock information.

Kendricks was released by the Eagles earlier this year, and signed with Browns a short time later.

He was expected to play as the team’s third linebacker this season.

Now, he is without a roster spot.
