Dolphins Working Out DT Malik McDowell

According to Field Yates, the Dolphins are bringing in free-agent DT Malik McDowell for a workout this week. 

This is the first reported interest in McDowell since he worked out for the Cowboys.

He was sentenced to 11 months in jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty to multiple crimes in Michigan.

Back in February of 2019, McDowell was stopped for suspicion of drunken driving after he allegedly got in a fight with two police officers.

McDowell was later charged in a separate incident with receiving and concealing stolen property.

McDowell’s career was derailed after he was involved in a serious ATV accident that left him with a head injury.

McDowell, 24, was selected with the No. 35 overall pick by the Seahawks in 2017 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $6.95 million rookie contract that included $4.91 million guaranteed. 

Seattle waived him with a non-football injury designation in July of 2018 and was officially cut loose in March of last year. He’s yet to make an NFL appearance. 

During his three-year college career at Michigan State, McDowell recorded 88 total tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, and scored one defensive touchdown in 32 games with the Spartans.
