Cowboys To Host Malik McDowell

The Cowboys are setting up visits left and right, and they are scheduled to meet with DT Malik McDowell tomorrow, as Todd Archer of ESPN.com tweets.

McDowell, 22, was the 35th overall pick of the 2017 draft, and the Seahawks selected him with the belief that he could become a regular along their defensive line. But he was involved in an ATV accident in the summer of 2017, and he has never played a down in the NFL.

Nonetheless, his youth and draft pedigree suggested that there would be at least a couple of teams willing to give him a shot, and the Cowboys are one of those teams. McDowell tallied 24.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks in 32 games at Michigan State, and Dallas could see him as a backup to Tyrone Crawford or Antwaun Woods, especially now that David Irving is out of the picture.

    What’s the diagnosis with him? Low risk, potentially extremely high reward with him. And Dallas has excellent doctors/ training staff to boot.

      Seahawks would not allow him on field. Major head injury, was lucky he didn’t get killed from reports. I am not sure he can pass a physical.

        From what I remember, didn’t he fracture his skull in that ATV accident? Too risky for any team, and certainly not worth it for him.

      He also got arrested last year or the year before? He has an interesting arrest video online.
