Marquette King does Shawne Merriman celebration against Chargers (Video)
Oakland Raiders punter extraordinaire Marquette King certainly came prepared for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
After he pinned the Chargers deep in their own territory with a 59-yard punt in the second quarter, King celebrated by busting out the “Lights Out” dance popularized by former Chargers All-Pro linebacker Shawne Merriman.

This definitely isn’t new behavior for King by any means. But the callback to a player in Merriman who hasn’t played in the NFL sinced 2012 and last suited up for the Chargers in 2010 at least wins King some points for sheer creativity.
Merriman would later respond to King’s antics on Twitter:
