Only two games remain in the 2016-17 NFL season. The Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons is set for next week, while this weekend will be the annual Pro Bowl exhibition.
The Pro Bowl showdown this weekend is slated at the Camping World Stadium, in Orlando, Florida. With the Pro Bowl going back to their traditional AFC vs. NFC format, fans get to see a matchup between the two conferences.
However, the conference rivalry hasn’t deterred the players from mingling with one another, as the Pro Bowl is a time for the players to have fun and enjoy the process, as a reward for their hard work this season. Perhaps no other player has enjoyed their time more so than Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King.
Coming off of his best season with the Raiders, King engulfed the NFL this season with his on-the-field antics, celebrating his successful punts with many dances dedicated to his opponents. Although the Pro Bowl is a competitive game, the players like to have fan and interact with the fans through social media.
King has recently stepped up to the slate, posting interesting videos demonstrating his punting skills, via King’s Twitter account:

That video, posted earlier this week, is on the surface as to what King has done with his time at the 67th annual Pro Bowl.
While many believe the video to be fake, the creativity deserves some praise nonetheless. King has never been shy of the spotlight, as his relaxed personality makes for fun interactions. King and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce even used the Pro Bowl to squash their beef earlier this season.
The pair danced together and have become nice friends since reaching out to each other. The fun didn’t end for King, as he posted another video today, showing the accuracy he has with is punt and the excitement his teammates have for him:
