According to Jordan Schultz of The Score, the Kansas City Chiefs are signing former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Charles Omenihu to a two-year deal worth up to $20 million. Omenihu is an unrestricted free agent.


The Houston Texans made Omenihu (6-5, 280) a fifth-round selection (No. 161 overall) out of Texas in 2019. The Texans traded him to the 49ers on November 2, 2021. The defensive lineman registered career-highs in tackles (20) and sacks (4.5), adding three tackles for a loss, 16 quarterback hits, a pass defensed, and a forced fumble through 17 game appearances (three starts) with the 49ers last season, per Pro Football Reference.

Omenihu, 25, has recorded 67 tackles, 11.5 sacks, and six passes defensed in 61 game appearances (10 starts) through his four NFL seasons with the Texans and 49ers. He was arrested after domestic violence allegations ahead of San Francisco's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.
