  NFL | Two-game ban for Malik McDowell    Fri Jul 12, 04:11 PM

Free-agent DT Malik McDowell received a two-game suspension Friday, July 12, for violating the league's conduct policy.

Footballguys view: McDowell is facing three charges from two separate incidents. A second-round pick of the Seahawks in 2017, McDowell never saw the field in Seattle. An injury in an ATV accident could keep him from ever being cleared to play football again. Add in these felony charges (and this suspension) and you can see how McDowell's NFL career could be over before it really got started.

  Seahawks | Malik McDowell sued by Seahawks    Fri May 31, 10:34 AM

Former Seattle Seahawks DT Malik McDowell is being sued by the Seahawks alleging he failed to repay the team $799,238, the amount an arbitrator ordered the defensive lineman to give back to the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: McDowell has yet to respond to the arbitrator's ruling. A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, McDowell missed his entire rookie season after suffering a severe head injury in an ATV accident. He was waived by the Seahawks last July and spent 2018 out of the league. McDowell turns 23-years old later this month and it sounds like he wants to resume playing football.

  Seahawks | No decision on Malik McDowell    Sat Apr 21, 03:41 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the team has not made a decision on DT Malik McDowell (head) at this point and are still waiting for guidance on his situation.

Footballguys view: First-round talent that slipped to the second round last year, McDowell didn't get on the field at all as a rookie after suffering massive injuries in an offseason ATV accident. The Seahawks are expected to release him soon as they continue to revamp their roster.

  Seahawks | Malik McDowell to be released    Mon Apr 16, 05:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks DT Malik McDowell (concussion) has not been medically cleared and is expected to be released in the near future, according to a source.

Footballguys view: McDowell had first-round talent, but off-field issues caused him to fall to the early second round...just in last year's draft. His rookie season was a complete wash as an ATV accident caused severe injuries that forced him to the sideline. An arrest in December for disorderly conduct didn't help his chances of making the team, and the Seahawks are ready to move on.
