Oakland originally signed the 6-foot, 195-pounder as an undrafted free agent in May 2012. After spending the 2012 season on the Reserve/Injured List, King has played in all 48 games for the Raiders over the last three seasons and has totaled 276 punts for 12,734 yards (46.1 gross average; 40.2 net average) with 94 punts downed inside the opponents’ 20-yard line.
