Chris Kluwe Signs With Oakland Raiders


Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe sure wasn’t out of work for very long. Kluwe was very outspoken during his time in Minnesota, which many people believe led to his release, but his personality will fit in perfectly with his new team in the Bay Area. According to reports on Thursday morning, Kluwe has inked a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Per Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities:

Kluwe is a very talented punter who will be able to help the Raiders out on the field and in the community.

There is almost no chance that Kluwe won’t beat out Marquette King and Bobby Cowan to win the team’s starting job, so prepare to watch America’s favorite punter suit up in the black and silver this season.

I can’t wait to see Kluwe’s first interaction with the Raiders fans. He is going to have some fun out there on the west coast.

    The Raiders don’t need this washed up drama queen. His numbers are horrible that’s why no one picked him up & the Raiders got him for the minimum. America’s favorite punter ? What are you smoking ? King will be the starter & kluwe can go back & play in his little boy band.
