Marquette King 5-year extension 'no brainer' for Raiders: What they're saying

No question, Marquette King is one of those guys who is easy to root for. A guy who switched positions in college from wide receiver to punter, went undrafted, took a year to develop, and worked his way to one of the best punters in the league.

The Raiders took a flyer on this raw, big legged prospect and it has paid off -- for both the team and for King, who today signed a 5-year deal worth $16.5 million with $7.75 guaranteed.

Since the announcement, the congratulations have poured in from around the NFL world and especially his teammates.
