Days after signing LT Russell Okung, the Los Angeles Chargers announced they've released T King Dunlap.
The 6-9, 330-pound Dunlap joined the Bolts as a free agent from the Philadelphia Eagles prior to the 2013 season. He won the battle for left tackle, and protected Philip Rivers' blindside for the past four seasons. His top season came in 2014 when he allowed just 3.5 sacks, tied for seventh-fewest in the NFL among tackles who started all 16 games. As a result, he was named the team's Lineman of the Year.
Meanwhile, the Chargers also announced that TE Asante Cleveland officially signed his Exclusive Rights tender. A 6-5, 260-pound blocking tight end out of Miami, he played in four games for the Chargers in 2016. Cleveland previously played for the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots.
