PRO: The Titans traded for defensive lineman David King at the end of the 2017 preseason to provide depth and flexibility on the defensive line. Following his four-year career at Oklahoma, King was originally drafted in the seventh round (239th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. King has also spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.
• In 2017, King appeared in a career-high seven contests and posted a career-high four tackles and a sack.
• During his sophomore season at Oklahoma, King’s mother, Gladys King, passed away. Gladys raised King in a single-parent home. King credits his aunts, cousins, teammates and coaches at Oklahoma for helping him overcome this tragedy.
• Due to his hard work on the field and in the classroom, King earned scholarships dating back to middle school. He was granted a scholarship at Houston PREP, an institution with a mission to help underprivileged children get into private schools. “We had meetings every Saturday, we were involved in community service and I took summer classes. Going to [Houston PREP] helped tremendously and it opened many doors in my life,” King said.
