Eagles OT Demetress Bell Loses Starting Job To King Dunlap

August 26, 2012 Eagles

Reuben Frank of reports that OT King Dunlap has been named the Eagles’ starting left tackle.

Dunlap, a 7th round pick in 2008, has developed into a very capable starter for the Eagles and has displaced free agent pick up Demetress Bellwho so far has not played to his potential.

Bell was signed to a five-year deal worth $34.5 million back in April after three seasons with the Bills. Dunlap is a monstrous individual, but there’s been some question about his overall ability. Philadelphia decision to sign Bell was designed to solidify the tackle position following the loss of  Jason Peters for the season, but his inability to play up to the level of a starting tackle has to be concern for the team.
