Raiders Punter Wants To Set Up GoFundMe to Pay For Horse-Collar Tackle
Sometimes, taking a penalty is worth it.
On Sunday, Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King made a touchdown saving horse-collar tackle, which he was flagged for. But it forced the Atlanta Falcons to settled for a field goal on that particular drive. While the Raiders ended up losing the game, they at least had a chance to win in the 4th quarter because of that tackle.

Marquette King knew immediately he would be fined for that horse-collar, but he doesn’t want to pay it so he took to Twitter to let his fans know how that upcoming fine would be handled.
Aye y’all I’m about to set up a go fund me for my horse collar fine I’m about to get today…

Clearly, he is joking since he recently signed a five-year, $16.5 million contract.
