Bullough signs with Texans

Former Michigan State middle linebacker headed to Houston as a free agent.

Max Bullough was among the Spartans most expected to be drafted in the late rounds on the NFL Draft, but when Saturday's seventh round came to an end, he had not been selected.

Soon after that, his brother Riley Bullough tweeted that Max Bullough would be signing with the Houston Texans.

Max later posted to his account.

Bullough started 40 consecutive games in his career, missing only the final game of his senior year serving a suspension as Michigan State won the Rose Bowl 24-20 against Stanford.

The suspension was for a violation of team rules -- still undisclosed as to the nature. He faced questions throughout the draft process about the suspension, never commenting publicly, but saying he did share it with every NFL team that asked.

Bullough finished his career with 299 tackles, putting him No. 18 on the all-time list at Michigan State.

The three-year starter was named a third-team All-American by The Associated Press after a senior season in which he had 76 tackles. As a senior, he was named first-team All-Big Ten by the coaches and media after being named first-team by the coaches and second team by the media as a junior.
