SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers are bringing back cornerback Jason Verrett on a one-year deal.
General manager John Lynch announced the agreement on Twitter shortly after Verrett was allowed to begin talking to other teams about a potential deal.
NFL Network reported the contract has a $5.5 million base value with the chance to make more.
Verrett, 29, is a Fairfield native who played for Angelo Rodriguez high school.
A person familiar with the deal says the Niners have also agreed on a two-year contract with edge rusher Samson Ebukam.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be finalized until the start of the league year on Wednesday.
