Broncos punter Marquette King, who earlier in the week jokingly claimed that he didn’t know who Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is, appears to have been planning his revenge on social media.

In a heavily produced vignette that he tweeted after the Broncos’ 20-19 comeback win over the Raiders on Sunday, the former Oakland punter tweeted a video entitled “Dear BFF… Part 1” that showed a reflective King appearing to address a “Chucky” doll – Gruden’s nickname – that’s covered in dollar bills.

King joined the Broncos as a free agent over the summer after an acrimonious breakup with Gruden and the Raiders, with whom he had spent his entire career.
