He suited up for 15 regular-season games in 2018 and made one defensive start. King worked mainly on special teams and recorded 21 tackles (16 solo). He'll likely continue to work in a reserve role behind Bradley McDougald and Tedric Thompson in 2019.
King was only given serious responsibility on defense twice, playing a combined 119 defensive snaps between Weeks 2 and 17 and just 26 in the other 14 games. Those added reps often stemmed when injuries sidelined players ahead of him on the depth chart. King will be a free agent in March and could be retained as a reserve safety and special-teams contributor.
King will benefit from Dontae Johnson (groin) being placed on injured reserve. He spent the 2017 season on the team's practice squad, so he will now get an opportunity under the bright lights. Still, he only projects to provide depth at cornerback, while also lending a hand at special teams.
