Yee Haw: Niners deal rodeo star, QB Pickett to Texans
Pickett started two games for the 49ers last season -- and completed a franchise-low one pass in a loss to Chicago. But the former rodeo cowboy and University of Washington star gained his greatest notoriety from a brief stint as a special-teams player covering kickoffs and punts.
The 49ers also signed former Houston defensive end Jerry DeLoach, who has started 40 games over five NFL seasons with the Texans and Washington.
San Francisco also released rookie receiver Chris Baker.
