Verrett can earn $6.5 million if he makes the Pro Bowl

Kyle’s update, 4:21 p.m.: The contract details are in, courtesy of ESPN’s Field Yates:

Josina Anderson reported that the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a one-year deal with cornerback Jason Verrett. The Niners general manager John Lynch confirmed the signing:

Ian Rapoport said that Verrett had a multi-year offer on the table but decided to bet on himself again. Verrett’s deal is worth $5.5 million, which could turn into $6.5 million if Verrett makes the Pro Bowl.

Based on Verrett’s season last year, the 49ers are getting a great deal. They now have Verrett, and Emmanuel Moseley locked in as their starters. That could change if the team adds another cornerback during free agency or the draft, but that’s a strong cornerback duo.

Verrett played close to an All-Pro level without the benefit of the 2019 pass rush from the 49ers. If San Francisco gets Nick Bosa to return to his rookie form or better, we haven’t seen the best version of Verrett. Congrats to him on earning another contract.

Waiting on you, Trent.
