             === Raiders, P Kluwe parting ways as King wins job ===
 
 (Sports  Network)  - Chris Kluwe  said Sunday that  Marquette King has won the
 Oakland Raiders' punting job.
 
 The  Raiders were expected to announce Kluwe's release later Sunday, according
 to the San Jose Mercury News.
 
 "Thanks  to everyone at the Raiders for the opportunity this preseason. It was
 a  blast,"  Kluwe wrote on  Twitter. "[King has] got  a bright future with you
 guys!"
 
 "Feel  like we  both had  a pretty  strong preseason,"  the 31-year-old  Kluwe
 added. "No regrets."
 
 Kluwe  signed  with the Raiders in  May after eight seasons with the Minnesota
 Vikings.  Last  season, he  averaged 45  yards on  72 punts.  He has only been
 blocked once on 623 career punts.
 
 Kluwe is well-known outside of football as an advocate for gay marriage.
