The San Francisco 49ers have reached a deal with their own free agent cornerback Jason Verrett. 49ers GM John Lynch announced that the team will be bringing the cornerback back on Monday, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that it is a one-year, $5.5 million signing that could go up to $6.5 million if Verrett makes the Pro Bowl this upcoming season.
Jason Verrett reportedly had a multi-year deal on the table, but chose to sign for one year and a return to the free agency market in 2022 in what is expected to be a rising salary cap. He was also cut just last week as a cap casualty on massacre week.
He played just six games between 2017 and 2019, but remained healthy enough to start 13 games for the 49ers in 2020. He had 60 tackles and two interceptions.
The 49ers have also re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk, which leaves left tackle Trent Williams as their biggest in-house free agent. San Fransisco still looks to have a couple of holes to fill as this week continues to progress.
