Punter Chris Kluwe Could Get Booted From the Minnesota Vikings
Rumblings of a special teams shake-up have been echoing in the Minnesota Vikings locker room as the team has been trying out new punters this week.
According to a report from 1500 ESPN, the Vikings have brought in former Indianapolis Colts punter Brian Stahovich for a tryout as the team starts to explore replacing current punter Chris Kluwe.
Kluwe had a few memorably poor punts during the Thursday Night Football matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, including a 20-yard shank out of bounds. This has added to his less-than-stellar performance over the season, placing him at 25th of the active punters in the NFL when it comes to gross punting average.
Stahovich, who gave an audition for the punting role for the Vikings, punted for San Diego State before being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Colts before the 2012 season started.
