The Ravens are a potential landing spot for free agent OT King Dunlap.

Dunlap has ties to OL coach Joe D'Alessandris from their time in San Diego. He would give the Ravens a stopgap after losing RT Rick Wagner. Dunlap struggles in pass protection, but could upgrade Baltimore’s run game.

Chargers released LT King Dunlap.

Owed a $500,000 roster bonus on March 18, Dunlap's release became a fait accompli after the Bolts signed Russell Okung. The move creates $4.875 million in cap space. Dunlap missed at least four games in 3-of-4 years as San Diego's left tackle. He hasn't been an asset on Philip Rivers' blindside in quite some time. 2017 will be Dunlap's age-32 season. He will hunt for swing tackle work.
Mar 13 - 1:44 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap is owed a $500,000 roster bonus on March 18.

It gives the Bolts a deadline at which to make a decision on Dunlap's future in L.A. Dunlap has been an injury-riddled liability for most of his Chargers career and was arrested for violating a protective order from his ex-girlfriend in February. Going on age 32, Dunlap is owed $6.75 million in salary and bonuses.
Mar 7 - 1:02 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap was arrested for violating a protective order Thursday in Nashville.

He was issued a $1,000 bond and has a preliminary hearing set for March 7. Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call allegedly involving Dunlap and his girlfriend. The girlfriend had a protective order placed against Dunlap, which he was aware of, and he was arrested. To this point, it doesn't sound like anything too serious, but domestic issues aren't taken lightly.

Chargers declared LT King Dunlap (knee), Melvin Gordon (knee, hip), Travis Benjamin (knee), TE Asante Cleveland, LB Denzel Perryman, C Max Tuerk, and DE Kaleb Eulls inactive for Week 17 against the Chiefs.

Dunlap was on the field more often this season, but he still managed just 12 games and has played a full 16 only once in his nine-year career. The 31-year-old is owed a reasonable $6.75 million in salary and bonuses next season, but the Chargers may still considering moving on. At the very least they need to find a capable backup.
Jan 1 - 3:01 PM

The Chargers may be without three offensive line starters for Sunday's game versus New Orleans.

Chargers LT King Dunlap (migraines) has been ruled out, while RT Joe Barksdale (foot) and LG Orlando Franklin (back) are listed as questionable. Barksdale did not practice on Friday, a typically ominous sign. Franklin did get in a limited session. Melvin Gordon has a dream matchup against the Saints in Week 4, but he may have to overcome a significantly short-handed offensive line.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Gordon is an interesting GPP fade in what appears to be a dream match-up. Gordon really struggled in his first game as the workhorse back (16 carries for 35 yards and a TD). You could help yourself by pivoting up to guys like Le'Veon Bell, Lamar Miller or Ezekiel Elliot.

Chargers LT King Dunlap (illness) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He's being treated for migraines. The Chargers are adamant that he doesn't have a concussion. Dunlap missed a large chunk of last season while battling a concussion. Chris Hairston will fill in at left tackle if Dunlap can't go against the Saints in Week 4.
Wed, Sep 28, 2016 06:16:00 PM

ESPN’s Eric D. Williams reports the Chargers believe LT King Dunlap will rebound this season.

A concussion and an ankle injury limited Dunlap to just seven games last season, but OC Ken Whisenhunt thought he played well when healthy. "I look at the tape -- and I know he missed some games last year -- but I see a lot of what I saw from him in 2013," Whisenhunt said. "I see energy from King and staying upbeat, which I like." The Chargers did not do much to address their offensive line this offseason, instead hoping better health and continuity will lead to improvement. Dunlap staying on the field would go a long way to making that hope a reality.

Chargers LT King Dunlap said he is not concerned about the possibility of another concussion.

Dunlap was sidelined due to a concussion early last season, but he downplayed how the injury will affect him moving forward. "Concussions, they happen. We play a contact sport," Dunlap said. "As far as I’m concerned, if I have another one that’s not the end. … I appreciate people being concerned, but I’m fine. I feel great." Dunlap was forced to miss nine games last season due to the concussion and an ankle injury. He has only played a full 16-game slate once in his career. With Dunlap set to turn 31 in September, it is possible the Chargers draft his replacement in Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil with the No. 3 overall pick.
Mon, Apr 25, 2016 09:38:00 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap has agreed to a $1.2 million pay cut for 2016.

Dunlap's salary has been slashed from $4.5 million to $3.3 million, but he can earn back all $1.2 million through playing-time incentives. A high-ankle sprain and concussion helped limit Dunlap to only seven appearances in 2015. When he was on the field, he struggled. Dunlap turns 31 in September.
Mon, Mar 14, 2016 02:35:00 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap's $4.5 million salary is fully guaranteed for 2016.

Dunlap played in only seven games last year, but was never a release candidate. The Chargers have him signed through 2018.
Sat, Mar 12, 2016 09:12:00 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap (probable, ankle) has been cleared for Week 14.

Dunlap will provide a run-blocking upgrade. San Diego’s pass game remains a concern with Philip Rivers (probable, illness) not fully healthy, and Steve Johnson/Dontrelle Inman sidelined. RG D.J. Fluker (concussion, questionable) is also on track to return after getting in two full practices this week.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 07:16:00 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 13.

The Chargers will also be without RG D.J. Fluker. It's a downgrade in run blocking, but San Diego has been playing with an injured offensive line all year. Chris Hairston will start in place of Dunlap.
Sat, Dec 5, 2015 06:41:00 PM

Chargers declared LT King Dunlap, RG D.J. Fluker, ILB Kavell Conner, DL Damion Square, OLB Cordarro Law, S Adrian Phillips, and CB Greg Ducre inactive for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

Dunlap injured his ankle in Week 11. Fluker has suffered another concussion. The Chargers' offensive line has been banged up all season long.
