Former Chargers OT King Dunlap Retires

NFL: Tennessee Titans at San Diego Chargers Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers released King Dunlap in March after signing free agent offensive tackle Russell Okung to replace him. The nine-year veteran played in 98 games and started 65 of them. He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles and there he spent the majority of his career before moving on as a free agent. He spent the final four years of his career in San Diego where he was the starting left tackle when not sidelined due to injuries (mostly concussions). He made 46 starts out of a possible 64 regular season games.

Dunlap’s agent tweeted out this morning that he would be retiring rather than trying to catch on with another team:

Hopefully, Dunlap is retiring with his health mostly still intact and that he can have a full life after football that is not hampered too badly by the beating his mind and body took during his decade in professional football.
