Texans Release Former LSU Receiver Malachi Dupre
A former LSU receiver is looking for a new NFL home.
A native of New Orleans, Dupre was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, before being cut one week before the season-opening weekend.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Dupre was then signed to the practice squad of the Buffalo Bills, where he spent most of last season, before being promoted to the active roster for one game last December.
A prep standout at John Curtis, Dupre was released by the Bills on September 1, prior to being signed to the Texans' practice squad on September 12.
He was later released on September 18, and then re-signed a week later.
Dupre was LSU's leading receiver in his final two seasons with the Tigers, recording 41 receptions for 593 yards and three touchdowns as a junior in 2016, after compiling 43 catches for 698 yards and 6 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2015.
