Johnson Bademosi agrees to deal with Texans

The Patriots lost a couple of players to the Titans in the early hours of free agency and now one of their players is moving to another AFC South team whose head coach has connections to the organization.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that cornerback Johnson Bademosi has signed a two-year deal to play for former Patriots assistant and current Texans head coach Bill O’Brien. Schefter reports it is a two-year, $6.25 million deal.

That’s a nice price for a player who was only on the field for 20 percent of New England’s defensive snaps last season, but Bademosi’s value is enhanced by the big role he plays on special teams. He did make three starts for the Patriots in 2017 and finished the year with 29 tackles.

He joins cornerback Aaron Colvin as new additions to Houston’s secondary in free agency.

  1. He filled in admirably at CB during the regular season last year, but in the playoffs and Super Bowl against better receivers he was not very effective.

    Good on STs though. Good contract for him, he would have been lucky if the Pats paid him 1 mil a year.

  2. Texans get a couple of “good but not great” FAs, and a bunch of “meh”. Maybe they’ve got something good planned for the draft – except they don’t draft until round 3.
    Not inspiring a lot of confidence.

  3. Patriot fans who really don’t know if the football is blown up or stuffed bashing the latest to leave. These special teams/role players are essential to winning as a team. Oh wait a minute he’s not seen on TMZ so he’s worthless

    Just think of the contract he would have gotten if he could actually cover someone – Pats Fan

    Thank you!!!

  5. He’s actually pretty good – disregard the Super Bowl fiasco, that’s on Bill – and I expected Bill to keep him, but again, not for 6 mil.

    I’m really surprised at the money teams are putting out for some of these guys.

  6. 6 million? Bademosi was smart to snatch that right away. I saw him more as one of those deep roster guys that spends their career going year to year trying to catch on for something even a lityle bit above minimum.

    ===========================================

    And yet not a single Patriots fan has bashed him, or any of these former Pats, for signing with another team. Pats fans greatly respect how these young men helped in the Patriots success, and are happy that they are able to reap the benefits of having played for the Pats by getting overpaid by other teams.

  8. Underrated player, IMO. I actually disappointed they lost him, but I am not sure he’s worth what he’s getting paid either.

    Really good tackler (save for the whiff on Agoholor in the SB). No one’s perfect.

    Since they acquired McCourty and upgraded at the same cost, it makes sense to hit the draft to flesh out the back end of the roster.

    When Chung went down, they should have put him on Ertz in the Rover. That was the mistake.

    The other mistake was thinking Jeffrey is their best WR. He’s not. It’s Agoholor.

    Actually you were just recently posting on how this was the start of the decline that he was someone the Patriots were turning to. So I would think now that they are moving on from him the decline is not starting after all.

    That doesn’t make sense. He only played 11 snaps. He SHOULD have played MORE, but not gotten Agholor in single man after Chung got hurt.

    The who was on who was the error by the Pats, not the player and the skill set.

    Agholor is far too much of a quick twitch player. But, Gilmore would have eliminated him in press-man at the line.

    Rowe on Jefferey with Harmon over the top. I hvae no idea what Harmon was doing on the Jeffrey TD.

    That throw should never have even be made if they had set it up the way I am talking about.

  12. Bademosi isn’t a starter, or even a number 3. So I don’t get all of the bashing. He’s a ST stalwart and leader that will improve any team he is on.

  13. .
    So far the Patriots have lost the following starters: LT Nate Solder, RB Dion Lewis, WR Danny Amendola, CB Malcolm Butler and now core special teamer, Bademosi. The 2018 Pats will have an entirely different look. They could really use a strong draft class this year. The loss of Solder may force them to look at a LT early.

  14. no one commenting here knows jack squat about what moves the patriots need to make, certainly including me. what i damn sure know is that
    belichick is making the decisions and he has put together the best teams in the league over an 18 year period. i’m going to let him handle it.

    Of course they will look for a LT early. @ good good ones are slated to go right at the end of the first round. Also, both Soldier and Light were drafted and start as rookies. So why wouldn’t they do the same again? Especially while Dante is still there to coach him up.
