Seahawks DL Malik McDowell Arrested

Malik McDowell is spending his rookie season on the NFI list after an offseason accident, and the young defensive lineman’s troubles continued this weekend.

McDowell was arrested for disorderly conduct, TMZ Sports reports, early Sunday morning stemming from an incident at a nightclub in Atlanta. The Michigan State product’s arrest followed a profane tirade, one that was based around a financial transaction.

TMZ reporting the matter involved a $600 alcohol purchase McDowell wanted back. He was then told he hadn’t yet paid the $600 he sought. When this confusion resulted in incessant shouting from McDowell, he was thrown out of the club. TMZ reports McDowell then got into a shouting match with police officers after leaving the club.

The Seahawks did not comment on the matter prior to their game against the Jaguars, per ESPN.

A second-round pick, McDowell suffered injuries in a summer ATV crash that will keep him out all season. The Seahawks held out hope he could play this season, but he’ll have to attempt to rebound from a rough 2017 beginning in the offseason.

    He’s a perfect fit for the Seahawks…minus Russel Wilson that is

      What was more embarrassing; the way we played, or the ending?

        The ending. I don’t blame Jefferson for his reaction towards the fan as he was leaving, but the Seahawks play on the Jaguar’s kneeldowns is bush league. I’m sure there was trash talking going back and forth all game, but when the winning team is doing the respectful thing by kneeling on it, the other team should just accept it instead of going for cheap shots. Especially what Bennett did to Linder (I think it was Linder, or whichever lineman it was). The play was basically dead, there was absolutely no reason to be going after the guy’s legs unless you’re trying to injure him. I’m not even referring to the initial leg dive on Linder as he snapped the ball either. It was the second act when Bennett was holding onto Linder’s legs as he tried to walk away.

          The game was not over. The Jaguars were up by one score with plenty of time on the clock. It’s not like the game was out of reach. A fumble changes the outcome.
