Bio

In March, the Chargers landed one of the NFL’s biggest free agents, literally, when they signed 6-9, 330-pound tackle, King Dunlap, to a two-year contract.

The former Philadelphia Eagle spent the majority of his first five seasons as a reserve before moving into the starting lineup in 2012, opening 12 games for the Eagles.            

Dunlap’s father, King Dunlap IV, is a former defensive tackle who played collegiately at Tennessee State before the Baltimore Colts picked him in the fifth round of the 1969 NFL Draft. His mother, Robin, is a former track star who also competed at Tennessee State, while his younger sister, Victoria, is a starting forward for the WNBA’s Seattle Storm. Victoria also played collegiately at Kentucky where she was an All-America and the SEC Player of the Year who also competed in the high jump for the Wildcats’ track and field team.           

Dunlap, who loves roller coasters, finds the only downside to being 6-9 is that he’s too tall to ride most of them. He hit his big growth spurt in the eighth grade, going from 5-11 to 6-5. He played middle linebacker as a youth before shifting to the defensive line and ultimately to the offensive line.         

Dunlap, whose full name, King David Dunlap V, was derived from the Bible’s King David, has two sons, King VI and Jaylen, and a daughter, Kayla. Lifelong friend and former University of Alabama linebacker, Darren Mustin, is the godfather to son, King Dunlap VI.
