49ers signing former Chargers CB Jason Verrett to one-year deal

Mar 14, 2019 at 12:24 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are signing former Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal worth $3.6 million, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Our own Al Sacco was the first to report the 49ers' interest in Verrett with Ian Rapoport later reporting that the team was hosting the cornerback for a visit, which included a physical.

Injuries have plagued Verrett's career in recent years. He has spent most or all of the last three seasons on injured reserve.

Verrett, 27, suffered a torn Achilles tendon on the first day of training camp in 2018. He missed most of 2017 after undergoing knee surgery and most of 2016 with an ACL injury.

The Chargers made Verrett, who played college football at Texas Christian, the No. 25 overall selection in 2014. He has recorded 80 combined tackles, 19 passes defensed, five interceptions, and a touchdown through his four NFL seasons.

Verrett's last full season came in 2015. He was named to the Pro Bowl after that season as a replacement for Darrelle Revis.

Richard Sherman has been high on his former squad, the San Francisco 49ers. Earlier this month, he predicted a Super Bowl win for Kyle Shanahan's team. Then, two weeks later, after an 0-1 start, Sherman doubled down on that prediction. Is his faith in the 49ers' chances this season starting to waver? San Francisco is now 1-2 after an 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. They say defense win championships, and the 49ers have one of the best in the league right now. While that unit looks to be in mid-season form, the offense has

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch never named the specific teams expressing interest in Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason. Last week, ESPN's Tim Keown and Nick Wagoner revealed that the Niners expected the quarterback to be shipped to the Washington Commanders, an option that evaporated when Garoppolo opted to undergo shoulder surgery. Today, ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed some more minor tidbits about the trade that never happened. "The deal would have involved multiple draft picks, according to sources," Schefter wrote, "but was disrupted by the surgery to Garoppolo's throwing shoulder, which prompted the Commanders to move on from their
