well, he was cut nearly a year after publishing an open letter to a Maryland politician. I would rank that as his biggest distraction.

But I agree - he was a very good punter and his outspoken nature probably had much to do with being cut.

 

I think you're misunderstanding what I said. He was replaced by a punter that was more efficient and cheaper, and then was cut by the raiders. I'm just saying it's not like the guy hadn't been regressing unlike Rhodes.

I heard this story on NPR tonight. 

 

I am not saying this guy wasn't cut because of his being outspoken.  But he was a average/middle of the league punter, the guy who replaced him had similar number and they saved about a million in salary cap.

He was a decent punter, not a very good one.  His numbers put him around 16th or 17th in punting average and net average.

Remember...Kluwe is a Deadspin darling.  I love Deadspin but they are a very liberal lot and making this guy out to be something more than he really is.
