Chargers add to O-line
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers signed tackle King Dunlap.
He is massive at 6-foot-9, 330 pounds. He started 12 games last season for the Eagles. He can play both left and right tackle. The Chargers have massive needs on the offensive line.
I think Dunlap will be given a chance to earn a spot at either right tackle or as a key backup, perhaps with the latter being the most likely scenario. This very likely doesn’t mean the Chargers are done looking for a starting left tackle. That is currently the spot where the team is expected to use the No. 11 pick.
In other AFC West news:
It has been reported the Raiders are interested in Jets’ guard Matt Slauson. He played under new Oakland offensive line coach Tony Sparano in 2012.
The NFL Network reports Denver pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil is now open to taking a pay cut with Denver. That probably means he doesn’t think his market would be great in free agency.
The Broncos are visiting with defensive tackle Terrance Knighton. He is sought after. He played for Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio with the Jaguars. CBS Sports is reporting Denver is interested in Oakland defensive tackle Richard Seymour. He could help a contender on a limited basis.
The Raiders are reportedly interested in Cleveland linebacker Kaluka Maiava. The USC product started 13 games on the weakside for the Browns.
