Malik McDowell is expected to be released after he has not been cleared after his ATV accident. Would love to take a flyer on him... I really liked him last year.

had some sort of ATV accident, pretty sure his injuries are reason why he's not at full strength for football (only reason why they are cutting ties with him). I dont think he even played a single down for them.

Don't think this is the only reason...had off field concerns coming out of college, then arrested for acting like an ass and cursing at and resisting officers in Atlanta...this last December...

To me, you give up on a first round pick that quickly only if something big is wrong...either he has revealed himself as a real jerk, or there is HUGE physical issue after the ATV accident. Either way, not interested in adding anything less than stellar character to this locker room.

He was only a second round pick, so does that cut him any slack?

My bad...could have sworn he was picked right there at the bottom of the first...but he was the 35th pick...that's still a high pick, to give up on so quickly, in my view. To me, if you are unwilling to medical him a year, you don't like the guy. There are red flags there somewhere.

The guy was a top 10 talent who fell to the 2nd due to character/effort concerns... so, no lol.

All this said, I would want our medical staff to evaluate him, might be worth a flyer/IR spot to see if he can eventually make it back. I read somewhere that Seattle is historically extremely conservative with health issues, moreso than most teams.
