The Houston Texans had a visit lined up with free agent cornerback Jason Verrett, but that will not take place after his first visit to San Francisco. The 49ers signed Verrett to a one-year $3.6 million deal preventing the Texans from getting an opportunity to meet with the veteran cornerback.
Verrett was a first round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers out of TCU. Verrett best season came in 2015 when he was selected to a Pro Bowl after appearing in 14 games posting 47 total tackles with 3 interceptions and 12 pass deflections. Verrett has not played a full season and only played in five games the past three seasons due to injuries.
In 2014. Verrett’s season ended prematurely after tearing his labrum and having tears in his rotator cuff. In 2016, he tore his ACL which he suffered in week four of the season. In 2017, he was shut down due to knee soreness that ended up requiring surgery. In 2018, Verrett tore his achilles on the first day of training camp which ended his season before it started.
For his career, Verrett has 80 total tackles, 19 pass deflections, 5 interceptions and a defensive touchdown.
With Verrett now off the list, the Texans head back to the drawing board to see who could be the next potential fit for the cornerback group.
