Texans reach agreement with Johnathan Joseph

Jul 28, 2011 at 5:10 PM--

Earlier today, it was reported that the San Francisco 49ers showed interest in free agent cornerback Johnathan Joseph. It was speculated that this was a fallback plan should the team not be able to sign Nnamdi Asomugha.

Well, that option is now off the table.

Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) reports the following on Twitter:

Filed to ESPN: Texans reach agreement with former Bengals CB Johnathan Joseph on a five-year deal. Nnamdi to Jets looking more likely.

Joseph received a 5 year contract worth $48.75 million and $23.5 guaranteed, including $12.5 signing bonus.

DE Charles Omenihu praises 49ers organization after trade from Texans: 'It's not a circus show here'

It seems as if defensive end Charles Omenihu couldn't be happier about his change of scenery from the Houston Texans to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers acquired the 24-year-old Omenihu from the Texans in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft just before the league's trade deadline on November 2. Omenihu played two-and-a-half seasons for the Texans after being selected in Round 5 of the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Texas, totaling seven sacks and 24 quarterback hits in 35 games (seven starts). He's been playing in mostly a rotational role since joining the 49ers but had his most impactful game since the trade in last Sunday's Wild Card win over the Dallas Cowboys, posting 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and a forced fumble.
