Former Oakland Raider Marquette King Signs With Rival Denver Broncos

It didnt take long for the most famous and flamboyant, punter in NFL history to land another job after being cut by Jon Gruden and The Raiders for being too flashy and more of a social media monster than his position traditionally warranted

Broncos officially announce they’ve signed @MarquetteKing. Great signing by Denver.

Grudens loss was the Denver Broncos’ gain. The crowned prince of NFL punters has signed a three-year, $7 million deal with Denver. Not only are the Broncos getting a kicker with one of the strongest legs in the game, but a player who should be very motivated to continue his effective punting while introducing his flair for fashion and the dramatics to the Mile High City.

Welcome to the @Broncos, @MarquetteKing!

Once he learns to make the wind work in his favor, King will do some amazing things with his leg on the field as well. Defensive field position following a punt, shouldn’t be a problem for Denver this season.
