Eagles, OT Dunlap agree to one-year contract

The Philadelphia Eagles locked up one of their more versatile backup linemen on Friday when they agreed to terms on a one-year deal with King Dunlap.

The signing looked like a lot bigger of a deal when the team announced a few hours later that offensive tackle Jason Peters had ruptured his Achilles tendon this week while training in Texas.

"Howie and I will sort out the roster situation for the offensive line. We are glad to have King [Dunlap] back as a part of our OL," Eagles coach Andy Reid said in a statement released by the team, "and we will continue to scan the free agent market, also knowing the draft is less than a month away."

Dunlap, a 2008 seventh-round selection, has started seven games in the past two seasons.
