49ers acquire pass rusher Omenihu from Texans for late pick


The 49ers have made a trade. 

The 49ers announced Tuesday afternoon that they have acquired pass rusher Charles Omenihu from the Houston Texans for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport first reported the news earlier Tuesday morning before the NFL trade deadline passed at 1 p.m. PT. 

Omenihu, 24, has 11 tackles and three QB hits this season in six games. The defensive end is yet to record a sack in 2021. 

Omenihu took to Twitter shortly after the deal was reported.

However, over the last two seasons, he has seven sacks and 21 QB hits over 29 games. He also put up those numbers while only starting five games.

The 49ers this season have 16 sacks in seven games. But Nick Bosa accounts for seven of those alone. Though other teams have played eight games, the 49ers rank just 20th in team sacks this season. 

Dee Ford ranks second on the 49ers in sacks with three. Bosa, Ford and Kentavius Street are the only 49ers with multiple sacks this season.
