Vikings punter Chris Kluwe opts for comedic relief.
During Saturday’s fifth round of the NFL draft, the Vikings chose Jeff Locke, a — you guessed it — punter out of UCLA.
Seeing as how teams rarely burn picks on punters or kickers, it’s certainly an ominous sign for Kluwe. ESPN’s Kevin Seifert reported this “probably means the end” of his eight-year career in Minnesota.
But the 31-year-old, who’s known as something of a joker, tweeted a humorous reaction to the selection of Locke, who ironically shares an alma mater with Kluwe.
That’s a bold move Cotton. Lets see how it plays.
