Texans Waive WR Keith Mumphery & ILB Max Bullough

The Houston Texans have placed WR Keith Mumphery and ILB Max Bullough on waivers Friday, according to John McClain.

This comes just a few days after new surfaced that Mumphery has been expelled and banned from Michigan State due to a violation of the school’s relationship violence and sexual misconduct policy.

Mumphery is accused of sexually assaulting a student in her dorm room back in March of 2015. The incident was reported to MSU police shortly after it occurred. However, there are conflicting accounts of who was the aggressor and whether elements of their sexual behavior were consensual.

MSU police requested third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges, but the Ingham County Prosecutor’s office declined to press charges because the case could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and the accuser did not return contact.

Mumphery, 24, is a former fifth-round pick of the Texans back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,446,252 contract and stands to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season.

In 2016, Mumphery appeared in 11 games and caught 10 passes for 69 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Bullough, 25, wound up signing on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State back in May of 2014. He was on and off of their active roster for his first two years in the NFL before making the 53-man roster last season.

Bullough stands to make a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season.

Back in May, Bullough was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the performance-enhancing drugs policy.

In 2016, Bullough appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 25 tackles and no sacks.
