Soon after the Houston Texans had rookies report for training camp, they have waived wide receiver Richard Mullaney. Mullaney participated with the Texans in rookie mini-camp but sat out majority of OTAs and Mandatory Mini-Camp with an undisclosed injury.
The Texan signed Mullaney to a free agent contract after the NFL Draft.
Mullaney started his career at Oregon State and had a breakout 2013 season with 52 receptions for 788 yards, but had his 2014 season ended prematurely with an elbow injury. With a coaching change at Oregon State, Mullaney (who had already graduated) made a decision and transferred to Alabama. A consistent player early on for Alabama, Mullaney helped the Crimson Tide’s offense by catching 38 passes for 390 yards and five touchdowns. His transfer paid off as he was part of a National Championship team with Alabama, garnering him a look from the Texans.
