Special teams players are players too. In fact special teams is one third of the game of football. There are times when the outcome of a game is 100 percent dependent on special teams. That is why the Houston Texans signed an excellent special teams player in Johnson Bademosi. Houston improves their special teams unit by signing Bademosi to a two-year $6.25 million deal.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter had the report Friday morning.
Bademosi is primarily a special teams player but can perform in coverage if needed. Bademosi’s three starts last season for the Patriots show that. It is good for the Texans to know that if called upon Bademosi can start. Although Houston is still better suited to find other solutions elsewhere.
It will be curious to see how Bill O’Brien and Romeo Crennel decide to utilize Bademosi. His ability on special teams is well known but it will be interesting to see if they deploy him in other ways. It is possible that Bademosi sees more time in the secondary this season. Of course the Texans will have to be careful, there is a reason Bademosi has only started six games in his entire career. The fact of the matter is that he is more useful on special teams rather than in coverage.
Johnson Bademosi’s NFL Journey
