Mike Garafolo reports that the Vikings, Panthers and Raiders are all showing interest in Chargers free agent LB Andrew Gachkar.

  • Garafolo adds that each of these teams could line up visits with Gachkar at some point this week.
  • Mike Jones reports that the Redskins have also shown interest in Gachkar as well.

Gachkar, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He has since played out his four-year, $2,085,900 rookie contract that included just $45,900 guaranteed and appears to have enough interest that he will be able to secure a sizable raise.

Last year, Gachkar appeared in 15 games and recorded 49 tackles, a fumble recovery and scored a defensive touchdown for the Chargers. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 28 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.
