Marquette King has been a member of the Denver Broncos for less than four months after being cut by the Oakland Raiders, and there are already problems. His issues started this past Friday when he went on 104.3 The Fan with Brandon Stokley and Zach Bye and purposely sabotaged the interview so badly that the hosts were forced to end it after 90 seconds. This is how it went:
Q: With two weeks of camp how would you summarize it for yourself?
King: Mmm…I don’t know how to summarize it…good? Like a regular practice day.
Q: How’s the transition been with a new team, new locker room moving from Oakland to Denver?
King: Mmm…I don’t know. It’s cool. Got some cool people on the team.
Q: How is your relationship so far with the coaching staff? Getting along well?
King: Yup. Everything’s going good.
Q: You always have a lot of personality, but it doesn’t seem like you have a lot to say right now. You frustrated about something in particular?
King: I just don’t like talking about football. I just do it.
Q: Well, tell us about yourself. Who is Marquette King, what do you like to do, what do you enjoy?
King: I know I like more oxygen.
Q: (Laughs) Is the altitude bothering you a little bit?
King: It gets on my nerves sometimes, but, I mean, it’s my job, so…yeah.
Q: How much are you looking forward to getting to start a week from tomorrow in preseason?
King: Ummm… I mean it’s definitely coming. So…
Host: Alright we’ll leave it at that, thanks for coming by… (King walks away)… Wow!…
King would eventually take to Twitter on Saturday to basically call Darren McKee a cocksucker.
On Sunday, King spotted McKee at training camp, so he walked over to him and threatened him to “Keep my name our your mouth” as Broncos PR people restrained him and forced him to leave the field.
Marquette King just came up to me and told me to “keep my name out your mouth”. It’s asked him “or what?” And he said it again in a threatening manner and was escorted by PR back into the building.

McKee then tried to take a shot at King by stating all players were signing autographs for fans, except for the punter, but teammate Shelby Harris had his back. – TO
