Did the San Diego Chargers restructure King Dunlap's deal to free up some additional cap space? There are conflicting reports on the issue.

According to one of the cap experts at overthecap.com, a great resource for contract numbers and cap updates for anyone reading this who may be unfamiliar, the Chargers may have re-structured King Dunlap's deal.

On the Chargers page on the over the cap website, it now lists King Dunlap's 2016 salary as $3.3 million, with additional bonus' that raise his overall cap number to about $5.145 million.

This is in contrast to what SDUT's Michael Gehlken tweeted out on Saturday.

If Jason is correct, they lowered Dunlap's base salary about $1.2 million for the 2016 season. Every little bit helps right?

**UDPATE**

It appears as though Jason was correct. Michael Gehlken has now confirmed Dunlap's deal was re-worked and dropped $1.2 million. However through playing time escalators he can earn back $1.7 million.
