King Dunlap Makes Eddie Royal Look Like A Midget In Bizarre Photo

We get that NFL players come in all different shapes and sizes, but this is just ridiculous. During the San Diego Chargers’ Week 3 win over the Buffalo Bills, 5-foot-10, 185-pound receiver Eddie Royal caught a pass and headed up field. Leading the way for Royal was 6-foot-9, 330-pound offensive lineman King Dunlap, whose first name is “King” for a reason. The play produced...

Chargers wear out Seahawks in win

A crowd in white drowned out the blue and neon green, in numbers and noise. Two star players from the visiting team left the field due to heat-related cramps. One was carted off. All week, the Chargers had a name for this game. "It was White Hot Sunday," wide receiver Malcom Floyd said. "We were all (hyped) up. It was a sold-out game. People wanted to see the Super...

Training Camp Preview: Chargers guards will battle for playing time

At this time last offseason, we were speaking of the Chargers offensive line in the same ways we spoke of the Chargers secondary in 2013. The 2012 Chargers’ offensive line was brutal. The 2013 Chargers’ offensive line was much, much improved. This feat becomes even more impressive when you consider the countless injuries suffered across the line during the season. Here’s a...

Which Chargers will be playing for a new contract in 2014?

While making changes to the roster this offseason, the San Diego Chargers have bumped themselves right up against the salary cap. Especially after the addition of Brandon Flowers, there’s not much wiggle room until players are let go during training camp. While the Chargers are up against the cap for this season, that won’t be the case in 2015. While that could leave room for...

Everything you need to know about the Chargers needs entering the draft

Let me take a moment before I begin this article to thank a coach. I’m not talking about Mike McCoy, Ken Whisenhunt, or Pagano.

Chargers go hunting for diamond in the rough with Brandon Ghee

In 2013, Tom Telesco made very few bad decisions. His first three draft picks as a general manager all contributed at a high level on the field, and appear to have the Chargers primed to be competitive for years to come. Free agent additions like Danny Woodhead, King Dunlap, and Chad Rinehart all outperformed the contracts they were given by San Diego. However, there is one smudge...

NFL Free agent primer: The 10 best at each position

Today, the Chargers and Tom Telesco can begin the pursuit of finding those final pieces to the puzzle in San Diego. The Bolts had an incredible run in 2013, but are still a few defensive players away from being a real championship contender. Last year, Telesco could have easily been named executive of the year with his first draft and free agent class. Danny Woodhead, King Dunlap...

Top 10 free agent offensive linemen: Chargers need depth

The past season couldn’t have been more encouraging for the San Diego Chargers offensive line. A unit that finished near the bottom of the league in 2012 bounced back to have a great year thanks to the additions of some new pieces. Right tackle, D.J. Fluker, will be a staple on the line for years to come while King Dunlap was perhaps the biggest surprise at left tackle. The line...

Reevaluating Tom Telesco’s first free agency

We’ve entered the awkward stage of the football season, when there’s not a lot of on-field action, but not too much off-field news either. It’s what leads people, both fans and media, to talk about things like the weather in New York/New Jersey nonstop. Sure there’s rumors about things like possible changes to the extra point and some game is being played in Hawaii on Sunday...

LT King Dunlap likely to be back for Chargers

Indications are that Chargers left tackle King Dunlap will return for Sunday's game against the New York Giants after missing three games with a neck injury. Dunlap's potential return means the Chargers (5-7) could have their opening day lineup on the offensive line intact for the first time since Sept. 22. With Dunlap back, rookie D.J.

Eddie Royal inactive for the Chargers

Eddie Royal has been on the injury report for a couple weeks now but he’s always been able to play despite not practicing.

It’s no surprise the Chargers were able to move the ball with the Broncos, because their rate of moving the chains is 2nd only to Denver (82%). Their defense, which allows opponents to move...
