Default King Dunlap is retiring

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...-after-9-years

Sounds like it's the smart long-term decision given his string of concussions over the past few years.

I thank him for his time in San Diego and wish him well and a toast to a healthy future!!

You want analysis? Don't ask me: I'm just a Pollyanna lying idiotic know-nothing ball-watching stat boy.

Because of the offseason additions to the oline this is not a big deal.

If TT didn't address it with a number of additions this would have been a "sky is falling" kind of announcement.

He adequately filled a huge hole for us for a couple of years. Thanks for his time... He should be financially set to enjoy the rest of his life.

I believe if we didn't have adequate replacements in place on the o-line there would have been many hopeful that King would return....including me.

King's retirement would be the final nail in the coffin for the o-line if major investment wasn't made during the offseason.
