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.

Here are two San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you. Both involve veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He will start against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, returning from the calf injury sustained on October 3. While Garoppolo is the 49ers' starter this season, the team drafted his successor, Trey Lance, in April. San Francisco will have a decision to make on Garoppolo after this season.

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in
