Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe will reportedly learn his fate today, as he's scheduled to meet with GM Rick Spielman, according to PFT. It looks as though they'd like to see just another look at rookie Jeff Locke in Monday's rookie minicamp to make their inevitable decision. Barring any setbacks, it's likely the end of the road for Kluwe in Minnesota. For Kluwe, it's a no-brainer on what they're likely to do today. “Most teams generally don’t draft a punter in the fifth round unless that’s who they’re going to go with,” Kluwe said, via Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune. “They said they would let me know Monday after the rookie minicamp.” Scoggins also thinks part fo the reason for his impending release is his mouth: 'Regardless of whether they admit it, the Vikings are jettisoning Kluwe partly because they grew tired of his outspokenness. It’s naive to think the move is based solely on his age (31), salary ($1.45 million) or how he performed last season (inconsistently). Kluwe has become the most visible punter in NFL history because of his social activism. The Vikings deny that Kluwe’s public stance on issues factored into their decision — not that they would ever admit it — but they likely prefer someone who embraces the anonymous life of an NFL punter.'
