The 49ers and cornerback Jason Verrett reportedly agreed a one-year, $5.5 million contract Monday, with general manager John Lynch all but confirming the deal on Twitter.

Lynch hardly was the only one excited about the former Pro Bowl selections, though.

Multiple current and former 49ers also took to the social media platform to express their excitement about the Fairfield, Calif., native staying in the Bay Area.Β 

Even 49ers CEO Jed York was excited about the deal.

However, there is sure to be conflicted emotion in the 49ers' locker room, with receiver Kendrick Bourne reportedly joining the New England Patriots on a three-year, $22.5 million deal.

Bourne, the first free agent to leave San Francisco this offseason, will clearly be missed by his teammates.

But former 49erΒ Kwon Alexander was just as happy for his previous teammate.Β 

Clearly, Monday was an emotional day for the 49ers. With the free agency period officially kicking off Wednesday, this is probably just the first of many.Β
