“For many years I have dedicated my life solely to the game of football,” Malveaux wrote (h/t to Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk.com). “I am grateful for every single opportunity I was given from God to compete and make my childhood dreams come true. Through all of the many ups and downs football has changed my life for the better. After much time and consideration, I have decided it is time to step away from this game. As hard of a decision it was to make, I know it’s time to move on.”
Despite going undrafted out of Houston in 2017, Malveaux managed to stick around the NFL for five seasons. He had stints with the Dolphins, Cardinals, Chiefs, Washington, 49ers, Browns, and Eagles. He saw time in 18 total games, collecting a pair of sacks.
The 27-year-old joined the Eagles practice squad in September. He ended up getting into three games for Philly, collecting three tackles and two QB hits. In those three games, he saw time in 33 percent of his team’s defensive snaps.
