The Houston Texans traded defensive end Charlies Omenihu to the San Francisco 49ers for a future late-round pick, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Omenihu had drawn interest from several teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, who traded for Melvin Ingram III earlier Tuesday.

Omenihu, 24, recorded 11 tackles and three quarterback hits in six games (two starts) this season. He has seven sacks in 35 games (seven starts) for the Texans in two-plus seasons. The Texans selected him in the fifth round of the 2019 draft.
