That's a shame. Chris Kluwe is probably my favourite non-Ravens player in the league.

A genuinely funny, witty and intelligent guy who isn't afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what he believes in. Any NFL team should want someone like him in their locker room.

So he shouldn't have too much trouble getting another job. And if he does, then he'd be a breath of fresh air on the NFL Network, replacing one of those gabbling clowns (preferably Heath Evans).

I like Rodgers. You must pick 1 Vikings starting player to like.


maaaaaaan.

Jared Allen is an okay guy I guess. Mad


The correct answer is actually Chad Greenway

As soon as MN drafted Locke in round 5, we knew Kluwe's fate.

Locke gives the team a younger and cheaper player with upside.

Kluwe is still a good punter, and should be a solid addition for any team who needs him.

Not surprised. Good for him if he finds a team, although I find him extremely annoying and hope the next stages in his career involves a lot less internet rantings.

He was the only Viking I actually liked (as a Packer fan).

Well then...

Going to miss that guy. Was hilarious. Especially after he took #4 following the 2010 season so Favre couldn't come back. Laughing


He took #4 because Donovan McNabb bought #5 off of him. Cute try though.

This move was bound to happen, and I wish him the best of luck.

He's hard not to like. He should be able to find a job in the league.

Maybe the Steelers sign him?

Would love to have him replace any one of those bozos

I truly doubt that Kluwe has any interest in football off the field.

But i could see him as a TV or Radio personality, maybe even hosting a talk show. He seems to have that type of personality and he seems to have a strong following wherever he goes.

Kluwe wont be on NFL N talking football, i just dont see it.

I dont see him doing anything football related after he retires... He has activism stuff (not sure how to describe that lol), his band and video games, which I think he likes all above football imo

One of the better known punters in the game. It'll be interesting to see if he hooks on with another team.

I'd vouch for the guy if he wanted to be a Global Mod on this site. Very Happy
