FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
The governor of Minnesota objects to the Vikings' release of punter Chris Kluwe. See what the politician had to say about the move.
GIVE 'EM THE BOOT
Once the Vikings drafted a punter in the later rounds of the draft, the writing was on the wall for the outspoken Kluwe and on Monday, the team made the move official.
