Marquette King: Drawing interest as free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (groin) is drawing interest from several teams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

King appeared in four games with the Broncos last season before suffering a groin injury and being released from IR. With the Bills and Dolphins among teams reportedly showing interest, it appears increasingly likely that King will get a chance to earn a role as the season approaches, though he'll need to pass a physical in order to sign anywhere. The 30-year-old veteran led the NFL in punting yards in 2014 and has a career average of 46.7 yards per punt.

Broncos' Marquette King: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos placed King (groin) on injured reserve Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

King, who joined the Broncos during the offseason, injured his groin in Monday's loss to the Chiefs. He subsequently underwent an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. While details regarding the severity of the issue have not been released, it will now keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. Colby Wadman has been signed to replace him.

Broncos' Marquette King: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (groin) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.

King's potential availability for Sunday's tilt appears far from promising, so the Broncos may be forced to make a roster move in order to promote fellow punter Colby Wadman from the practice squad. King's roster spot might even be in danger if Denver's front office elects to go in that direction.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (groin) will get an MRI to examine the extent of his injury Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

King left in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game against the Chiefs with what was believed to be a leg injury, but that was debunked by an MRI on Tuesday, and it's now believed to be a groin issue. His status will become clearer once the test results come back.

Broncos' Marquette King: Treks to Mile High City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos and King reached agreement on a three-year contract Thursday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

King led the NFL in gross yards per punt in 2013, his first season with Oakland. While he hasn't matched those heights (48.9 per) in the meantime, his marks have ranged from 44.5 to 47.4 in a given campaign. There have been various reasons mentioned for his release from the Raiders, but performance seemingly wasn't one of them. Expect King to find comfort in the thin air representative of the Mile High City.

Marquette King: Cut by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King was released by the Raiders on Friday.

King's $3 million cap hit is likely the main reason for his release, but there is also speculation new head coach Jon Gruden wanted to send message with respect to his lack of tolerance for the loquacious King's antics and celebrations. Regardless, the 29-year-old and 2016 second-team All-Pro selection seems likely to find a new team for the 2018 campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King's solid play throughout the season also earned him second team All-Pro honors by the Associated Press, CSNBayArea.com reports. Having signed a five-year extension with Oakland in February of 2016, King is slated to remain with the Raiders through 2020.
