the San Francisco 49ers added a talented but injury-prone cornerback to their high school Thursday when they signed Jason Verrett, the team confirmed to the San Francisco Chronicleof Eric Branch.

According to ESPN Adam SchefteVerrett's deal is $ 3.6 million over one season.

This comes after Ian Rapoport of reported that the 27-year-old was attracting "significant interest" and visited the Niners with a "critical" physique.

Physics was important because injuries defined Verrett's career from San Diego at the time. Chargers He selected with choice # 25 in the draft of 2014. He suffered tears of labrum and rotator cuff in the left shoulder as a rookie. He played six games. He played four games in 2016 because of a partially torn ACL, and then played only one match in 2017 because of a knee injury.

Plus, he missed the entire 2018 campaign with a torn Achilles.

The interest in the TCU product in the league was surely based on its 2015 season when it looked good for a long and successful career as a versatile cornerback half able to line up at different points of the field.

Verrett played 14 games and finished with 47 tackles and three interceptions, including one for a point. The result was a nod to the Pro Bowl and Focus on professional football 90.9 cover, which was tied for the top of the league among the cornerbacks.

If he can regain the form he has demonstrated during the 2015 campaign, Verrett will be one of the best recruits under the radar of the offseason.

There is reason to be optimistic considering that he is only 27 years old and that he should be in the middle of his youth. If he fulfills his potential, San Francisco will have a possible addition to the Pro Bowl for his defense while he continues his playoff spot in 2019 after finishing 4 to 12 last year.

The 49ers were a very poor 28th league player in points scored in 2018 and will have to drastically improve their defense to face in the NFC West. Verrett will help them to do exactly that if he stays healthy.
