RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks hope they have found the solution for their recent kicking troubles in Jason Myers and are bringing back linebacker Mychal Kendricks despite his uncertain legal situation.

The team agreed Wednesday to sign Myers to a four-year deal, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. Seattle agreed to sign Kendricks to a one-year deal, according to another person with knowledge of that deal. The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the deals had not been formally announced.

Kendricks’ deal is worth up to $5.5 million but is dependent on his legal situation after he pleaded guilty to insider trading charges last year. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said late last season he was hoping to bring Kendricks back for 2019.

Myers was in a competition with Sebastian Janikowski during Seattle’s training camp last year. Janikowski won the job, in part because of his veteran status, but it was Myers who had the better season after being claimed off waivers by the New York Jets.

Myers was 33 of 36 on field-goal attempts in New York and was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career — the first Jets kicker to be selected in franchise history.

The 27-year-old Myers kicked an NFL-record five field goals of at least 55 yards last season. He also had six field goals of at least 50 yards, setting a Jets franchise record. Myers set another team mark by making seven field goals against Indianapolis last season.
