Chargers Sign WRs Malachi Dupre & Jordan Smallwood, Waive Two


The Chargers announced Sunday they’ve signed WRs Malachi Dupre and Jordan Smallwood to the 90-man roster. 

In corresponding moves, the team waived WRs Dylan Cantrell and Fred Trevillion with injury designations. 

Dupre, 23, is a former seventh-round pick of the Packers back in 2017. He was, unfortunately, cut loose coming out of the preseason by Green Bay.

The Bills later signed Dupre to their practice squad before eventually promoting him to their active roster towards the end of the season. Buffalo waived him during final cutdowns in 2018 and he had brief stints on the Texans, Seahawks and Cardinal’s practice squads. 

Dupre was activated for one game with the Cardinals in 2018, but did not record a stat. He was waived by the team this past offseason. 

During his college career at LSU, Dupre caught 98 passes for 1,609 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns over the course of 31 games.

Smallwood, 24, wound up signing on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma back in 2017. Unfortunately, the Chiefs waived him coming out of the preseason.

Smallwood signed on to the 49ers’ practice squad last year and returned to San Francisco on a futures contract after the season. He was waived in May and caught on with the Lions before being waived again in June.  

During this four-year college career at Oklahoma, Smallwood caught 18 passes for 170 yards receiving and one touchdown to go along with four rushing attempts for 16 and two scores over the course of 21 games.
