Marquette King has not lived up to the lofty expectations

ENGLEWOOD Menelik Watson Jersey , Colo. (AP) — Marquette King has not lived up to the lofty expectations the Denver Broncos had of the athletic punter working at altitude, so now he’s got some competition.The Broncos signed rookie punter Colby Wadman from UC Davis to their practice squad in hopes of snapping King out of his funk.“Well, we’ve had him here in the mandatory minicamp, he’s been with Tom (McMahon, the Broncos’ special teams coordinator), and we have to get better there,” coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday. “So, we’re looking forward to Marquette having a good week of punting.“It’s a performance-based business, so we’re trying to get better there.”King averaged just a 39.3-yard net on seven punts in Denver’s 27-14 loss at Baltimore, where he failed three times to flip the field with booming punts that were his hallmark before his release from the Oakland Raiders in the offseason.King hasn’t had the hang time the Broncos expected of him, something that will be imperative to improve on Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.“You want to hang the ball with Tyreek Hill,” Joseph said. “That’s going to be the key with this guy. He’s a dangerous returner. He doesn’t fair-catch the football. But I think hanging the ball high is going to be one of the keys to containing him. But again, it’s going to take our entire coverage team and we have to do a good job of keeping him from hurting us with punt returns.”King signed a three-year, $7 million deal with the Broncos after Raiders coach Jon Gruden cut him in March. Afterward, the Broncos traded Riley Dixon, who averaged 45.7 yards in his two seasons in Denver with a net of 40.8 yards Todd Davis Jersey , to the New York Giants.King ranks 22nd in the league with a 44.6-yard average and is 14th with a 41.6-yard net.“He has to simply punt better,” Joseph said earlier in the week. “No different than our corners have to play better in coverage, and we’ve got to block better. He’s a football player and he’s got to do his job. He’s got to punt better.” This "negotiation by proxy" over news conferences and social media is not going to end well for anyone."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Denver Broncos 2019 DraftDear John & Chris - Work it out.New,70commentsThis “negotiation by proxy” over news conferences and social media is not going to end well for anyone. Dear John & Chris - Work it out.Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY SportsDear John & Chris -It’s been a while since I was reeling from recent news so much I felt compelled to write a letter. And this time isn’t quite the level of disgust I normally reserve for such letters.But as this contract story has played out over the last 24+ hours, I am getting more annoyed at how both of you - yes, both - are handling the negotiations.John - it is well-documented that you are frugal, some (me) might even say cheap. That’s understandable. You are the GM, and lord knows if I were head honcho, this team would have 204 players and be broke.So I appreciate that you have always enjoyed being “the buck stops here” guy, and you bring the same competitive spirit to the front office that you always did on the field.But COME. ON.There is nothing weak about acknowledging some players are worth the money, and you can actually respect their talent by giving them what they’re due. Maybe it’s not $15 million, but it sure as heck is more than $8.5 million.And while most players approaching 30 are not worth the best contract of their careers perhaps, some are. Some - such as Chris Harris Jr. are due that contract partly because they should be rewarded for what they have meant to the franchise, even if they won’t be able to live up to it for more than two or three years. The point is that they already lived up to it. But most importantly, you have to learn how to deal with players on a more personal level even if, to you Brandon McManus Jersey , “it is strictly business.”You should absolutely not follow the Docllv School of Negotiating - “How much did you say you wanted? OK. Here’s a bonus just for being cool, too.”But stop with the constant underselling.You did it with Von Miller, and it almost cost the Broncos the best edge rusher in the NFL.You did it with Matt Paradis, and it did cost you the best offensive lineman the Broncos have had in years.You are about to do it with Chris Harris, Jr., and it’s going to cost you one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL as well as one loyal Bronco.Just stop.You brought in a 31-year-old corner for $11 million a year, more than $2 million more than a Pro Bowler who has already taken a hometown discount. So don’t get stubborn when he seems a little miffed by a perceived “message” - whether true or not. Check your ego at the door and talk to CHJ like the Super Bowl-winning Pro Bowler he is.And Chris. Chris, Chris, Chris.Early reports made it sound as though your agent and the Broncos have been in recent discussions that went south. But as more unraveled throughout the day, it seems your Tuesday midnight ultimatum (not the best tactic with Elway, by the way) was based primarily on your inference from Elway’s replies to reporter questions at his news conference earlier in the day.“I just go off what y’all (the media) ask him in the press conferences and you see what he said,” Harris told The Athletic on Wednesday.This is a poor choice.First of all - and I’m speaking from experience of sitting in on many news conferences as well as listening to “coach-speak” and “GM-speak” at far too many of them - do not base your thoughts on this contract according to what Elway tells a room of reporters (many of whom suck at reporting “news” anyway, plus it’s really easy to take those comments in a vacuum and make them seem worse than in the true context of a random question two days before the draft if Elway was going to finalize a deal).And for goodness’ sake, do not play this negotiation out over Twitter.The fact that you are quoted in The Athletic on Wednesday also saying the negotiation “can be salvaged” is good news for the team and fans alike. But the drama you escalated after Elway’s comments to reporters should never have happened.My advice is to do what Von did. Let Elway get through the draft. He’s not going to bite on a $15 million ultimatum one day before some of the most stressful three days of the year for him.After the draft dust settles, meet with Elway one-on-one. Leave the agents and the lawyers outside (they’re greedy bastards anyway), and just talk to the boss. Tell him why you want to stay in Denver but why you should be compensated. Remind him how much Vic Fangio’s defense needs you John Elway Jersey , especially with a ‘win-now’ mentality that Elway obviously has employed by getting Joe Flacco for the next couple of seasons while the Broncos sort out their long-term quarterback deficiency.You have the leverage, but you can’t back Elway into a corner (pun intended). Watch ‘The Drive’ a few times and remind yourself that Elway gets out of corners - and it would be a shame to get out of this one without the best corner.There’s no reason the “Chris Harris Jr. era” has to come to an end in Denver.The team needs you.The fans want you.You love Denver.So both of you need to figure this out.And Broncos PR ... for the love of all things Orange and Blue, get your social media game together to avoid this fiasco again.Sincerely,Broncos CountryHorse TracksDraft Flashback: Bradley Chubb cruises into Denver during the 2018 NFL DraftBroncos TV looks back on the day Bradley Chubb became a Denver Bronco and discuss what John Elway told Chubb during his draft-day phone call.NFL draft: Ranking every #1 pickSomehow John Elway is below Cam Newton on this list.Broncos Country Lashes Out Over Broncos Poster With No Chris Harris, Jr. – CBS DenverBroncos Country was not pleased with a tweet from the Broncos Wednesday night - and for good reason.‘I always wanted to retire here’: Chris Harris Jr. hasn’t closed the door on returning to the Broncos – The Athletic“I just go off what y’all (the media) ask him in the press conferences and you see what he said,” Harris said of Elway.ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.: LB Devin Bush could have ‘a huge impact’ for Broncos“Today’s NFL fits him perfectly,” Kiper said of Bush during a Monday conference call with media.Denver Broncos NFL mock draft: Final 7-round projection – The Denver PostWith the draft tomorrow, here’s a view of how things could unfold -- from Rounds 1-7.
