Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Jaylen Watkins, who visited with the San Francisco 49ers last week, is signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Watkins, who played both cornerback and safety in Philadelphia, would have been a versatile depth signing for the 49ers. The Eagles made him a fourth-round draft pick out of Florida in 2014.

During his four seasons with Philadelphia, Watkins registered 56 combined tackles with eight passes defensed. Over the past two seasons, he appeared in 28 games with five starts and recorded 49 combined tackles with three passes defensed. In 2017, Watkins saw 168 snaps on special teams compared to 165 on defense.

Watkins is the older half-brother of former Los Angeles Rams and current Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The two were briefly teammates in 2015 when Jaylen was signed to the Buffalo Bills' practice squad while Sammy was with the team. Jaylen was re-signed by the Eagles off of the Bills' practice squad in November of 2015.
