Malik McDowell doubles down after Seahawks sue over bonus money

Malik McDowell

Former Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Malik McDowell is not going to give into his former team’s demands on his signing bonus.

McDowell is being sued by the Seahawks, who want him to pay back roughly $800,000 in bonus money after an ATV injury prevented him from playing for the team. McDowell, the No. 35 overall pick in 2017, was never cleared by Seattle’s doctors, but he claimed Saturday that he’d been cleared by an independent neurologist and he was released for reasons unrelated to his injury.

This may not be a fight McDowell is poised to win, as an arbitrator ruled in Seattle’s favor in February. Given the stance McDowell is taking, he appears to be prepared to take the Seahawks on head-to-head over the issue.
