COLUMBIA - Former Missouri linebacker Andrew Gachkar has reached an agreement with the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers selected Gach in the seventh-round and are hoping he can add a boost to the worst special teams squad in the NFL last season.

"We believe he's going to be an exceptional special teams player and we targeted him," General Manager A.J. Smith said after San Diego drafted Gachkar. "We believe he will be contagious."

Terms of the contract have not yet been released to the public.
