The San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms with former 1st round pick cornerback Jason Verrett previously with the Chargers. According to Adam Schefter it will be a one-year, $3.6 million deal. With a severe history of injuries that have plagued his career so far, the contract was contingent on him successfully passing a physical. He suffered labrum and rotator cuff tears in his left shoulder as a rookie and only played in six games, appeared in four games in 2016 because of a partially torn ACL and then appeared in just one game in the 2017 season because of a knee injury. Verrett has tallied a total of 80 tackles, 19 pass breakups and five interceptions in his five year career. He has only appeared in 25 out of 80 potential games in his tenure with the Chargers. The former pro bowl cornerback is a quality low risk, high reward move that could certainly bolster the 49ers secondary if he can find a way to stay healthy. Verrett will compete with Ahkello Witherspoon and Tarvarius Moore for the starting job opposite of Richard Sherman.
