The Texans have made two moves to free up some space on the roster by parting ways with wide receiver Keith Mumphery and linebacker Max Bullough.

Mumphery and Bullough had both been part-time players on the Texans’ roster, with Mumphery being drafted in the fifth round in 2015 and Bullough joining the Texans as an UDFA in 2014. Both made the 53-man roster last season, but their places on the depth chart were far from secure. With the Texans selecting Zach Cunningham in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft and Mumphery only playing 24% of all of the Texans’ offensive snaps in 2016, they were firmly on the roster bubble in 2017.
Bullough and Mumphrey also had off-the-field issues recently, with Bullough being suspended by the NFL for violating their drug policy and Mumphery being banned from Michigan State’s campus for a sexual misconduct violation that reportedly occurred in March of 2015, shortly before he was drafted by the Texans.
What do you make of the release of these two former MSU stars?
