The Oakland Raiders have released the only African-American punters in the NFL, Marquette King, after six seasons with the silver and black.

First, the Raiders announced at 4:21 p.m. ET that King had been cut. Moral of the story here: Life comes at you fast.

King's career with the Raiders saw 426 punts for 19,941 yards with 33 touchbacks.

King also was a standout in his years with the team.

Since joining the club in 2016, he has recorded a team-best eight takeaways and was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl during his first season as a Raider. In 2013-14, his first season as the starter, King led the National Football League in gross yards per punt at 48.9 yards.

The punter has been a popular player with the Raiders for several years now and has a loyal following on Instagram with more than 350,000 followers.

Tiffany went on to say that Bey stormed off and went up to her husband Jay-Z to tell him what had happened. But it's said that all was forgiven because the actress was "on drugs" and didn't usually act like that.

In addition to his experience as a punter, King's unique skill set could give Fipp yet another weapon to keep opposing teams guessing.

Walford was a third-round pick by the Raiders in 2015.

The Vikings have Ryan Quigley under contract for next season, but there's no penalty to release him. According to the Pioneer Press, the punter's plan is to sign with someone by the time the draft rolls around, which means the Marquette King sweepstakes will be going on for roughly four more weeks.

I was told King's release was a "message" and it was a Gruden-led decision.

Whatever the reason Gruden cut him, there's now a second-team All-Pro punter available in free agency.
