Seeing as how he’ll only have to serve one day in jail, Kendricks won’t have any issues getting a job if a team is interested.

Kendricks took information from insider trading that helped make north of $1 million, and he was facing a long time in prison after pleading guilty.

In fact, he was facing up to 25 years behind bars! That’s a ton of time!

However, he got off incredibly light. He’ll serve one day behind bars, serve a few years of probation and do some community service.

Seeing as how much time the judge could have handed down to Kendricks, he got off insanely easy.

Now, he’ll have to do his best to find a new job in the NFL. With his legal problems behind him, he should have an okay shot at playing again.
