Agent Drew Rosenhaus said Monday that he "is confident" that McDowell (concussion) will play in 2019, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
McDowell was selected by the Seahawks in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but a serious ATV accident put his career in jeopardy that offseason. After being injured, McDowell was placed on the NFI list and never practiced with Seattle again before ultimately becoming a free agent earlier this month. The team felt that McDowell would not be able to get healthy enough to continue playing football, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, though he reportedly was cleared by independent doctors. The 22-year-old intends to resume his playing career if a team assesses him to be healthy. He already visited with the Cowboys in mid-March.

Despite the swirling of Jimmy Garoppolo and Kirk Cousins rumors, Deshaun Watson remains a more plausible quarterback target for the Browns.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Seahawks traded down in the draft a couple times to pick McDowell in the second round, 35th overall. No one questions his skills as an interior pass rusher, but plenty questioned his motor coming out of Michigan State. The Seahawks were satisfied he wouldn't let them down, but he didn't even make it to the field before he became a problem. McDowell was involved in an ATV accident this offseason and might not play this year, as his recovery figures to be lengthy. It looks as if whatever the Seahawks get out of him this season will be gravy.
