Just a few weeks after ally Brendon Ayanbadejo was released by the Baltimore Ravens, punter and ally Chris Kluwe has been cut by the Minnesota Vikings. TPTB insist that the decision has nothing to with his activism:
“It has nothing to do with anything Chris Kluwe is off the field,” the GM said. “When we’re making decisions, we’re purely making them trying to bring in the best competition possible regardless of position. … This was just another normal personnel move. It had nothing to do with Chris Kluwe’s off-field concerns, I have no issues if Chris Kluwe wants to express his opinion. That’s his right, that’s his freedom of speech. This is just a football decision to bring in a guy to come in to compete.”
Not everyone agrees with this assertion, but Chris saw the the writing on the wall when they brought in a younger punter to train with the team.
We’re sure Chris will move on to bigger and better things, and he has our support every step of the way.
