Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is one of the most outspoken players in the NFL. Some of the stuff he says and does is entertaining, but Kluwe can be annoying in the sense that he is one of those people who seems to think everyone cares what he has to say about everything. In fact, even Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer has grown tired of it. On Thursday, a reporter jokingly asked Preifer if he was going to hide the tape from Kluwe this weekend so he couldn’t stick another pro-Ray Guy patch on his uniform and get himself into trouble. Preifer clearly didn’t think the stunt was amusing. “I don’t even want to talk about it,” he said according to the Star Tribune. “Those distractions are getting old for me, to be honest with you. Does Ray Guy deserve to be in the Hall of Fame? Absolutely. But there are other ways to go about doing it, in my opinion. “To me, it’s getting old,” Priefer said. “He’s got to focus on punting and holding.” Priefer was then asked if he had spoken to Kluwe about it and he said he hasn’t because the punter “won’t listen.” Whether it’s calling Hall of Fame quarterbacks nasty names, using a whiteboard to mock the commissioner or swearing it up on Twitter, Kluwe is always looking to get a rise out of someone. Should the Vikings decide to part ways with him, he would likely get a job punting elsewhere. If not, Kluwe certainly has a future as a pundit — whether its in sports, politics or both.
