She and former husband Marvin, are also proud parents to Mychal’s sister Danielle, and his brother, Eric –who is also an NFL player.

The three siblings were raised by Yvonne Thagon who split with Marvin Kendricks, a former running back at UCLA who played professionally in the Canadian Football League but became addicted to drugs.
According to ESPN, Thagon worked numerous shifts as a pharmacy technician to make ends meet and provide for her three children. She also took jobs tending at a snack bar.

In September Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading and the Cleveland Browns released him, having signed with them in June. Just days later he was picked up by the Seahawks and signed a one-year-contract. He suited up for Seattle for three games.
According to prosecutors, Mychal made approximately $1.2 million in profit after receiving non-public information from Damilare Sonoiki, who was then an employee at Goldman Sachs. Yvonne’s son is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 24.
