This will be good for the Texas Ex.

Multiple reports that your Houston Texans have sent Charles Omenihu to the 49ers.

What did the Texans receive? Something between jack and squat.

While I think Omenihu’s value is greater than “a future late rounder,” the Texans have no one to blame but themselves for this paltry return. They have frequently misused Omenihu throughout his time here, often making him a healthy scratch on game day this season. Houston has a dearth of pass rushers on the roster, yet Omenihu wasn’t even allowed to suit up when it mattered much of the year.

Here’s hoping the Texas Ex finds exponentially more success with the Niners than he had in his hometown. This has a chance to be a sneaky good move for San Francisco.

UPDATE: Houston will receive a 2023 sixth round pick for Omenihu.
