Free agent offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz is scheduled to visit the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, according to the Scout.com website.

Schwartz had been with the Carolina Panthers and became an unrestricted free agent when that team did not extend him a restricted free agent tender. Scout.com reports that the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions also have expressed interest in Schwartz.

The 25-year-old Schwartz, a seventh-round pick by Carolina out of Oregon in 2008, did not play in 2011 because of a hip injury but he is now recovered. He has experience at both right tackle and right guard and would give the Vikings versatility on the line.

Vikings offensive line coach Jeff Davidson is very familiar with Schwartz, having served as the Panthers offensive coordiantor before joining the Vikings last season.
