Sebastian Janikowski will reportedly visit with Chargers
Sebastian Janikowski was released by the Oakland Raiders earlier this offseason after 17 seasons with the team, but the 40-year-old does not appear ready to retire just yet.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Janikowski is scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Former Raiders' K Sebastian Janikowski is expected to visit the Los Angeles Chargers, per source. Janikowski could go from Oakland to LA.

Janikowski did not play in 2017 because of a back injury, but he made 82.9 percent of his field goal attempts in 2016. The number was a little skewed because he attempts so many long-distance kicks due to his leg strength, and five of his misses came from the 50-plus range.
We already speculated that the Chargers would have interest in Janikowski, and it seems like a logical pairing after the team was mocked for its disastrous kicking situation last season. If L.A. does sign Janikowski, they will likely have a younger kicker in training camp and hold a competition for the job.
