Chargers trying to lure back free agent

One Charger who hit unrestricted free agency is back in the mix as a potential re-sign candidate with the field dwindling down to two teams.

Defensive end DeQuincy Scott has received interest from the Chargers after being allowed to test the free agent waters.

The competition is the Minnesota Vikings – ironically where former Chargers' director of pro personnel Fran Foley landed.

SDBoltReport.com has learned that the Chargers and Vikings are the sole teams in contention for his services.

Scott is a vocal leader in the locker room and provides a change of pace presence in the 3-4 that can pressure the quarterback. But his off the field intangibles rate just as high as his on the field contributions.

Scott, 6-foot-1, 265-pounds, contributed 4.5 sacks, tied for third most on the roster, for the team in 2005 and has netted 14.5 since joining the team in 2002 as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss. He tied his career high with two sacks against Oakland on ESPN Sunday Night Football game Dec. 4. He also notched 13 tackles.
