Former LSU Star Malachi Dupre Signs With Chargers
A former member of the LSU Tigers has found a new NFL home, in his bid to make an opening week roster.
Receiver Malachi Dupre signed with the Los Angeles Chargers over the weekend.
The 23-year old Dupre, who played for LSU for three years, from 2014-2016, played one game with the Arizona Cardinals last season.
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 lin December of 2017.
A prep standout at John Curtis, Dupre was released by the Bills on September 1 of last season, 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.
After being released, once again, by the Texans in November, Dupre spent a week on the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks, before released and signed by the Cardinals, where he spent three weeks on their practice squad, prior to playing in the season finale.
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.
