KING DUNLAP RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Union-Tribune San Diego’s Kevin Acee believes Chargers offensive tackle King Dunlap will begin the season protecting Philip Rivers‘ blind side.

1. Offensive Tackle: The Chargers are certainly in the running for worst offensive line in the NFL, and the tackle position is their biggest problem. They made the move to sign King Dunlap, but he had some of the worst games I had ever seen out of a linemen last season. They not only need a starting caliper left tackle, but a right tackle as well. They need to address this as...

King Dunlap is expected to return to practice on Wednesday, again complicating the Eagles left tackle situation. Demetress Bell has filled in for Dunlap the last two weeks to uneven results while Dunlap recovered from a hamstring injury. Dunlap beat Bell for the job out of training camp.

Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com reports that OT King Dunlap has been named the Eagles starting left tackle.
Dunlap, a 7th round pick in 2008, has developed into a very capable starter for the Eagles and has displaced free agent pick up Demetress Bell, who so far has not played to his potential.
Bell was signed to a five-year deal worth $34.5 million back in April after three...
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid says that the demotion of left tackle Demetress Bell to the second team and promotion of King Dunlap to the spot with the first team is no big deal. It’s always been an open competition and they just want to be sure that they have the right fit.
Is Reid stating simple fact, or is the move a sign of bigger problems for the Eagles?
Left tackle Demetress Bell was signed this offseason to stand in for Pro Bowler Jason Peters after he went down with an offseason Achilles injury. The success of the offensive line is critical for ensuring success for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and after just one preseason game the Birds decided that change was needed.
During Saturday’s walk through, the towering King...
The Eagles re-signed King Dunlap yesterday to a 1 year deal. King Dunlap is one of the tallest players in the NFL standing at 6’9 330lbs, mainly used in a backup roll for most of his career, even though he started a couple of game for the Eagles last season. King has started seven games throughout his career, but his most notable game, came when he started vs the Cardinals and...

King Dunlap isn't one of those short, stocky, chubby guys that usually play guard. But while he might not look the part, the Eagles are fairly confident that the 6-foot-9 Dunlap can play it.
With Evan Mathis missing practice Thursday for a second straight day, Dunlap is on target to start at left guard Sunday when the Eagles (3-5) face the Cardinals (2-6) at Lincoln Financial...
