NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans have traded defensive lineman Charles Omenihu to the 49ers for a late-round pick. No surprise here. All the Texans seem to do is trade their players for late-round picks these days. Despite being one of the team's best defensive players, Omenihu has been a healthy scratch for multiple games this season. After rumors of static between Omenihu and the Texans, possibly due to Charles having the same agent as disgruntled Texans QB Deshaun Watson, Omenihu will be moving on to the 49ers. Omenihu recorded seven total sacks during his three years with the Texans.

Editor's note: Adam Schefter is reporting that the compensation will be a 6th round pick in 2023.

What will the Houston Texans do at QB this offseason? Is Texans QB Davis Mills still part of the team's plans at QB? DeMeco Ryans had some interesting comments about the Texans QB situation on The Rich Eisen Show. He mentioned the Texans already had one QB on the roster, that being Davis Mills.

When asked about the Texans plans with the No. 2 overall pick, he didn't mention a QB. He named Andre Johnson and JJ Watt as the type of players the team would love to draft. Does that mean the team isn't sold on drafting a QB early? Or is DeMeco just playing his cards close to the vest?

ESPN Houston's Jake Asman, Cody Stoots, and Brad Kellner reacted to his comments and much more on The Wheelhouse.
