Oakland Raiders outside linebacker Bruce Irvin has never been shy to voice his opinion, even when it involves another teammate.
Just recently, Irvin was jokingly asked a question on whether he would play both sides of the football this season, and he chose to respond by taking a shot at Raiders punter Marquette King.
I can play everything even punter. And I won't take pics with the enemy as a joke. 😂😂🤔 https://t.co/5K605M9zyy

Irvin’s subliminal tweet (and supposed beef) towards/with King is likely related to the Raiders punter taking a photo with Denver Broncos rival cornerback Aqib Talib.

Talib pulling on King’s chain above is making light of Talib ripping off Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s chain in the team’s Week 17 matchup with the AFC West crown was on the line.
Many of Raider Nation, including Irvin, did not like the gesture. Shortly thereafter, King offered his reply.

While the banter likely doesn’t mean much, most of the reaction from Raider Nation was in staunch support of Irvin.
