Kyle’s update, 4:21 p.m.: The contract details are in, courtesy of ESPN’s Field Yates:
Jason Verrett's one-year deal with the 49ers:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 15, 2021
Signing bonus: $2M
Base salary: $2.5M
Per-game roster bonuses: $1M
$1M incentives available via playing time, interceptions and the Pro Bowl.
A base value of $5.5M is outstanding value after how he played last year.
Fired up to have @Jfeeva_2 back w the squad! Congratulations JV!— John Lynch (@JohnLynch49ers) March 15, 2021
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.
