  • Titans' Bradley McDougald: Picked up by Titans

    McDougald and the Titans came to terms on a contract Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. McDougald spent his first four seasons in Tampa Bay before stints with the Seahawks and Jets over the last four years. His season was cut short in 2020 after shoulder surgery. He will now look to add a veteran presence to the Titans' defensive backfield. Look for him to compete with the likes of Tedric Thompson and Brady Breeze (ankle) for a depth strong safety role.

  • Jets' Bradley McDougald: Fine after injury scare

    McDougald (ribs) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. McDougald still managed to play nearly every snap in Sunday's game against the Colts despite leaving with a rib injury. He should be at full speed Thursday night against the Broncos after recording 10 tackles against the Colts.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Generates 70 stops in 2019

    McDougald, who recorded 15 tackles and a sack over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 70 tackles, 0.5 sacks, three pass breakups and two interceptions over 15 regular-season contests. McDougald served as the team's starting strong safety for the second straight season, and he was solid against the run and in coverage. The 29-year-old led the team in postseason tackles, and he ranked fifth on the team in the regular season. He's in line for another starting role in 2020 -- the final year of his contract at a cap hit of $5.4 million -- but his IDP value isn't enticing in the Seahawks' scheme.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Superb playoff performance

    McDougald posted 11 tackles -- 2.5 for a loss -- and a sack in Sunday's 17-9 wild-card win over the Eagles. McDougald didn't surpass seven tackles in a game during the regular season, and he had just 0.5 sacks over 15 games. However, the 29-year-old safety was explosive in this contest, helping hold the Eagles to just nine points. The Seahawks will travel to Green Bay for the divisional round.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Full practice participant

    McDougald (back) practiced without limitations Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. McDougald was active for this past Sunday's win over the Falcons, but it's possible back issues are the reason he was held to just 14 defensive snaps. His full participation Wednesday signals McDougald may have shaken his back injury. As long as he finishes the practice week without a setback, McDougald should return to an every-snap role in Week 9's matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Limited Thursday

    McDougald (back) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. McDougald missed Wednesday's practice and wasn't able to participate in any capacity last week, so Thursday's limited session is a notable step in the right direction. Back spasms have ailed McDougald as of late, but he appears to have a shot at suiting up against the Falcons on Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Still unable to practice

    McDougald (back) sat out of Wednesday's practice, Adam Jude of The Seattle Times reports. McDougald continues to work through back spasms, and he'll likely at least carry a questionable tag into Sunday's game against the Falcons. The Seahawks acquired Quandre Diggs via trade from the Lions on Tuesday, and Diggs could immediately take over a starting role if McDougald can't go, although rookie Marquise Blair looked solid in his place last week.

His presence in the starting lineup Week 8 would be a notable boost for Seattle's secondary.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Trending in wrong direction

    McDougald (back) is not expected to suit up in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

If he's officially ruled inactive for the game, rookie Marquise Blair is expected to start at one of the safety positions alongside Tedric Thompson. Look for the official word on McDougald's status about an hour and a half prior to kickoff.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: No practice Tuesday

    McDougald (knee) was a non-participant at practice Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. McDougald has battled the knee injury for the last few weeks, though he hasn't been limited on gameday in the two games since the issue occurred. The 28-year-old's practice reps the rest of the week will provide further clarification on his availability, but for now he seems likely to play through the injury once again for Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas.

    McDougald (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. McDougald spent the entirety of last week away from his team as he sought an out of town specialist to rehab his knee injury.

A win would secure the Seahawks' playoff berth, so McDougald -- officially listed as questionable -- give it his best shot to retake the field.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Ready to rock Sunday

    McDougald (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the 49ers. McDougald will line up as the Seahawks starting strong safety for the 13th straight game. His IDP value remains suspect with 68 tackles, nine pass breakups and three interceptions in that span, but 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens has thrown six picks in the last four games and could provide turnover opportunity.

McDougald has been a workhorse in Seattle's secondary this year, compiling 68 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and two forced fumbles in 13 games.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Headed for game-time decision

    Coach Pete Carroll said McDougald (knee) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. McDougald was held off the stat sheet last week when he suffered a knee injury in a 25-17 loss to the Chargers, marking the first time all season he failed to record at least four tackles. He then missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he came back Friday as a limited participant and now seems to be on track to play, according to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. Of course, we may not get word on a final decision until the Seahawks release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 PM ET kickoff. Delano Hill filled in at safety after McDougald was forced out of the game last week.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Likely will not practice much this week

    According to head coach Pete Carroll, McDougald (knee) is 'pretty sore' and likely will not practice much in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. McDougald did not play in the second half of Seattle's loss to the Chargers in Week 9 due to his injured knee. At this point, the veteran safety's status for Sunday is uncertain, but his condition should clear up throughout the coming week of practice. If McDougald is forced to sit out Week 10, Akeem King is in line to fill in at strong safety for the Seahawks.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Still nursing knee injury

    McDougald did not play during the second half of Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Chargers due to a sore knee, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. McDougald was questionable entering Sunday's tilt against Los Angeles, and left the field on multiple occasions before ultimately being held out for the second half of the Week 9 contest. The starting safety should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, and McDougald's participation in practice this week warrants close monitoring.

  • Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Staying in Seattle

    McDougald will stay in Seattle on a three-year, $13.95 million contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. McDougald had 75 or more tackles each of the last three seasons, despite making only nine starts among his 16 games in 2017. He had a limited role in the first half of the season, eventually taking over as the starter at strong safety after Kam Chancellor suffered a career-threatening neck injury. The Seahawks hope Chancellor can return for 2018, but if not, McDougald is a competent replacement. The 27-year-old piled up 52 tackles in seven games (7.4 average) after Chancellor went down for the year.
