For the die-hard Eagles fan, seeing DGB’s name is enough, but we’ll dig deeper. Once Rivals.com‘s number one-overall prospect in the nation (and the 40th-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft), figuring out how Green-Beckham’s potential never seemed to catch up with his hype can be quite the task, but know this.
It didn’t take long for the Titans to realize that ‘DGB’ wasn’t the guy they thought he was. Philly sent offensive tackle Dennis Kelly to Tennessee to see if there was anything left in Green-Beckham’s tank. They found out there wasn’t. Ten-and-a-half months later, they waived him.
No other NFL team has decided to take a chance on him.
Once it was found out that Kendricks didn’t want to be with the Eagles any more, it wasn’t a matter of if he’d walk. It was, simply a matter of when. The day finally came on May 22nd of 2018. On June 5th of that same year, he signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns.
On August 29th of 2018, he was released after being charged by federal prosecutors with insider trading. On September 13th, he signed with the Seattle Seahawks, but on October 2nd, he was suspended by the NFL because of those same insider trading charges.
That led to an eight-game suspension. Kendricks returned on December 2nd, but he broke his tibia and was placed on injured reserve on December 12th. He signed a one-year, $4 million contract extension on March 13th of 2019, but since leaving Philly, you can count them yourself.
Four total in-game appearances with 19 total tackles and two sacks don’t make it seem like Philly’s missing much. Let’s move on.
