Malik McDowell was the feel-good story of the year for the Cleveland Browns after returning to the NFL but he’s once again in hot water
In 2021, the Cleveland Browns took a chance on Malik McDowell, an incredibly gifted athlete who had not played football since 2016.
A second-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, McDowell was in an ATV accident before ever playing in a regular-season game. Reports surfaced early on Tuesday that McDowell was arrested in Florida and allegedly assaulted an officer in the process. Co/p1J0YTh4h3

These are some ugly allegations and the team issued a statement saying they are aware of the situation and “Gathering information.”
What this means for Malik McDowell’s future with the Cleveland Browns
Should the accusations prove to be true, it seems it would surely spell the end of the line for Malik McDowell.
But what about the rest of the NFL?
That too could be a problem for McDowell.
