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.
