49ers Signing CB Jason Verrett To One-Year, $3.6M Deal


Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers are signing former Chargers CB Jason Verrett to a one-year, $3.6 million deal on Thursday. 

Verrett has missed a substantial amount of time due to injury, but was once one of the best young cornerbacks in the NFL.

The Chiefs and Texans reportedly had interest in meeting with Verrett, but San Francisco appears to have stepped up and closed the deal. 

Verrett, 27, was taken with the No. 25 overall pick back in 2014 by the Chargers. He finished his four-year rookie contract and played out 2018 under the fifth-year option for $8,526,000.

Verrett has landed on injured reserve for last three consecutive years. He missed all of last season due to a ruptured Achilles. 

In 2017, Verrett appeared in one game and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
