Author:

Ex-Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has landed on his feet.

He’s signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, according to Fox Sports.

Kluwe was cut to make way for UCLA’s Jeff Locke, who the Vikings selected in the fifth round.

Kluwe’s contract is for the league minimum as he returns to his home state.

“I’m excited to be an Oakland Raider and be playing in California,” Kluwe told reporter Brendon Ayanbadejo. “Now, my family can actually come to games.”
