49ers Rumors: Ex-Chargers CB Jason Verrett Agrees to 1-Year, $3.6M Contract

The San Francisco 49ers reportedly added a talented but injury-prone cornerback to their secondary Thursday when they signed Jason Verrett.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Verrett's deal is worth $3.6 million over one season.

This comes after Ian Rapoport of reported the 27-year-old was drawing "significant interest" and had a visit with the Niners that included a "critical" physical.

The physical was important because injuries have defined Verrett's career since the then-San Diego Chargers selected him with the No. 25 pick in the 2014 draft.
