Mychal Kendricks' off-field troubles aren't expected to affect his availability this year.

While speaking Tuesday at Seattle's mandatory minicamp, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team believes the veteran linebacker will play this season despite his ongoing insider trading case.

"We do expect him to be on the team this year," Carroll said, via ESPN.com.

Prosecutors accused Kendricks of profiting more than $1 million from July 2014 to March 2015 on non-public information provided by investment banker and co-defendant Damilare Sonoiki, who received $10,000 and game tickets from Kendricks when he played for the Eagles.

NBA Draft 2019 rumors: Knicks considering trading No. 3 pick

NBA Draft 2019 rumors: Knicks considering trading No. 3 pick New York could make the move in an effort to acquire pieces that would "better complement" free agents like Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving. The report adds a trade of this nature likely wouldn't happen until the draft starts because both teams would want to know which players are available when the No. 8 pick is on the clock. The Knicks finished this past season with the worst record in the league at 17-65 and many projected New York would earn the No. 1 overall pick and then go on to select Zion Williamson out of Duke. But the Pelicans and Grizzlies ended up taking the first and second picks, respectively.

Kendricks' sentencing was originally scheduled for early 2019 but has been postponed numerous times for reasons that remain unclear. A future sentencing date has yet to be set.

"There's not much that I can say that's going to be proper at this time," Carroll said. "Everything's moving along and he's real optimistic about how things are going. But really not too much to report. I can't tell you much more than that."

Kendricks, 28, was selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2012 draft. He played six seasons in Philadelphia and had a brief stint in Cleveland before the Browns released him last August.

He was then acquired by the Seahawks, though his 2018 campaign was plagued by suspensions and injury, as he sat out eight games for violating the league's personal conduct policy and later broke his leg.

He has 473 total tackles, 16 sacks and three interceptions over his career.
