​The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders already have quite a heated rivalry. However, the temperature of said rift is only increasing, and will create quite an atmosphere in the rivals' Week 2 matchup.


Marquette King is the current punter for the Broncos, after he was released by the Raiders once new head coach Jon Gruden entered the scene. It's safe to say that King has some ill-will towards his former team and its head coach. 


When asked about playing against Gruden, King replied with two simple words.

Cold blooded!


​King's release came after reports of a "personality conflict" between himself and Gruden surfaced. King wasn't on the market for long, as the Broncos swooped in once hearing of the punter's interest in playing at m​ile high altitude.

The punter has been very critical of his former team, as he posted a video of himself in Broncos apparel doing his signature "pony dance" in front of the Raiders facility. 

He even sent out a subtle shot at Oakland once the team traded Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears by using a link to rapper Kendrick Lamar's track titled, "LOYALTY."


Make no mistake about it, there's still bad blood between King and the Gruden-led Raiders. If King performs at the top of his game at Mile High Stadium, he'll let his former team know about it, whether it's by talking smack or by dancing on the field.
