CB/special teamer Bademosi joins Texans

It's another free-agent loss for the Patriots as cornerback and key special teams player Johnson Bademosi has agreed to a two-year, $6.25 contract with the Houston Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Bademosi, who turns 28 in August, saw plenty of time in the secondary in the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles with the benching of Malcolm Butler. He joined the Patriots in a trade from the Detroit Lions on Sept. 2, 2017, in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft pick.

Bademosi joins left tackle Nate Solder (Giants), cornerback Malcolm Butler (Titans), running back Dion Lewis (Titans) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (Dolphins) as recent free-agent departures from New England.

Quick Slants The Podcast: Does Pats ugly loss in Tennessee outweigh their six-game winning streak?

Tom Curran and Jerod Mayo break down the Patriots' 34-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans and they look ahead to how the team can improve during the bye week.

1:38 - Jerod's number one reason why the Patriots lost: They couldn't establish the run game.

6:58 - "You could tell Vrabel hyped this team up." Tom and Jerod discuss if the revenge factor was underrated leading up to this game and also hit on if the Patriots 7-2 record coming into Week 10 really reflected how they had been playing.

11:57 - Jerod talks about how the Patriots defense needs to improve during the bye week and how they clearly aren't playing like a championship-caliber unit.

19:09 - Jerod says that the bye week couldn't come at a better time and that it's a good chance for the Patriots to do some self-scouting as they look ahead to the Jets.

25:31 - Tom asks if it's more important to remember that the team had won six games in a row than worry about the loss to the Titans.
