BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Malik McDowell is making the most of a last chance with the Browns. Drafted four years ago by Seattle, the defensive tackle served jail time following a run of serious legal issues. But despite not playing since 2016, McDowell had an impressive training camp and preseason with Cleveland and earned a spot on the team’s 53-man roster. The 25-year-old is grateful for the opportunity and has vowed to reward the Browns for their trust in him. The team feels he can upgrade their defensive line and help All-Pro end Myles Garrett.
