Marcus Gilchrist provides value as a free agent

San Diego Chargers safety Marcus Gilchrist is among the top free agents that provides value at his position.

Gilchrist is a starting safety who also plays nickel and some slot cornerback and plays nearly every snap.

The 26-year-old finished second on the team in tackles behind All-Pro free safety Eric Weddle last season.
Gilchrist is an athletic 5-foot-10, 198-pounder from Clemson who was drafted in the second round.
Gilchrist was a better fit at safety than slot cornerback.
Gilchrist's versatility could pay off in free agency as his four-year, $3.96 million rookie contract expires.
