"It was somewhat of a revenge factor, too," King told reporters on his decision to join Denver, per 9News.
King's personality reportedly didn't mesh with Jon Gruden's new philosophy in Oakland.
In Denver, the already big-legged King will be aided by the thin Mile High air. Last season, King ranked sixth in the NFL in average yards per punt (47.4) and third in net yards per boot (42.7), to go along with 28 punts downed inside the 20-yard-line.
Denver headed into the offseason determined to upgrade its disastrous special teams play from a year ago. King's addition will aid that cause.
