Eagles Bring Back King

Birds re-sign back veteran offensive lineman

The Eagles made sure one of their biggest weapons -- literally -- remained in midnight green.

The Eagles inked 6-foot-9-inch, 330-pound King Dunlap, who was a free agent, to a one-year deal Friday.

The offensive lineman brings both his size and some necessary veteran experience to back up the Eagles starting five linemen.

Per CSNPhilly.com’s Reuben Frank:

The Eagles re-signed veteran offensive tackle King Dunlap Friday morning, giving them depth and experience at a position where they had neither after unloading former starter Winston Justice.

Dunlap, a seventh-round pick by the Birds in the 2008 NFL Draft, has appeared in 38 games and started seven times in his three seasons in the league.

For being an offensive player, his most memorable contribution to the Eagles likely came last season when he blocked a David Akers field goal attempt in a game against the 49ers.
