The Texans are continuing their fire sale, and the 49ers are adding some depth to their defensive line.

Charles Omenihu has been traded from Houston to San Francisco for a late-round draft pick, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The 24-year-old Omenihu was a fifth-round draft pick out of Texas in 2019. He was a starter in Houston at the beginning of this season, but his playing time has declined in recent weeks. It’s not surprising that the Texans, who are mostly packing it in and quitting on this season, have decided to trade him.

The 49ers still think they have a playoff run in them, and they’re hoping Omenihu can bolster their defense and help them get there.

  1. “Would’ve rather we addressed the Secondary than the DL”

    The NFL has decided to not call holding this year, especially when it involves some of the most prominent edge rushers (see Joey Bosa’s comments). A result is that teams who based their defensive schemes on a strong DL (like the Niners) have gotten screwed. Agreed, that they would’ve been better going after a DB, especially given their atrocious secondary play so far this year. Or maybe put one of their rookie CB’s in there — how much worse could they do?

  2. They will never make up for their blunder of letting Buckner go. Chalk it up to inexperience and hubris.
