San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu seems more than happy being with his current team after the Texans traded the 2019 fifth-round pick in early November. He had no trouble hiding his feelings about his former team Wednesday.
“It’s not a circus show here,” Omenihu told reporters Wednesday.
He added how the 49ers aren’t an “ego-driven organization” and don’t have a “power struggle” between the head coach and general manager. Omenihu played most of his Houston career with Bill O’Brien as head coach and GM, while spending part of 2021 with David Culley and Nick Caserio in those respective roles.
The defensive lineman also seems happier even those he’s playing fewer snaps for his current team, which will face the Packers in the NFC Divisional round on Saturday night in Green Bay. He played about 50 percent of the snaps during his 35 games with the Texans, while only playing 25 percent of the snaps with the 49ers tallying six total tackles in nine regular season games.
“A breath of fresh air, for sure,” Omenihu said of playing for the Niners, and not the Texans.
