The King got paid.

Former Philadelphia Eagles tackle King Dunlap is doing well for himself in San Diego. According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Chargers have reached a contract extension with Dunlap worth $28 million over four years. No word yet on how much is guaranteed.

Dunlap has started at left tackle for the Chargers in 27 games over the past two seasons. He originally signed with San Diego as a free agent in 2012 to a deal worth $3.7 million. For what it's worth, Pro Football Focus graded Dunlap as the 23rd best overall offensive tackle in 2014. They rated him 6th overall (!) in 2013.

Eagles fans obviously weren't so high on the King. The 6-9, 330 pound lineman failed to impress in 19 starts over four years with Philadelphia.

Dunlap was originally drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft at pick No. 230 overall.
