Broncos Ink Free Agent and Former Raiders Punter Marquette King

The Broncos have signed free-agent punter Marquette King to a three-year contract, ESPN reports.

Pro Football Focus ranked King third among all punters last season, and he finished third in the NFL in net punting average (42.7 yards).

On March 30, the AFC West rival Oakland Raiders released King, whose social media presence was just as large as his punts were booming. While the Raiders did not offer a reason for cutting King, there were whispers that new head coach Jon Gruden’s old-school ways might not have jibed with King’s larger-than-life personality, especially for a punter.
