Source: 49ers to sign ex-Chargers CB Verrett

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

Verrett suffered an Achilles tendon tear during a conditioning test a day before the start of Chargers' training camp last year, forcing the TCU product to miss the entire 2018 season.

Selected No. 25 overall in the 2014 draft, the 27-year-old Verrett has missed 55 of a possible 80 games in five seasons with the Chargers.

However, Verrett is an elite cornerback in the league when healthy; he earned an invitation to the Pro Bowl after the 2015 season.

Verrett has 80 combined tackles, 19 pass breakups and five interceptions in five seasons with the Chargers.
