Coach to Kluwe: Focus on punting


Despite a solid game against Chicago Sunday, a verbal jab was aimed at Vikings punter Chris Kluwe today.

Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer was asked by reporters about Kluwe’s recent “distractions” -- the latest being his support for Ray Guy for the Hall of Fame.

Priefer: "It's getting old. He's got to focus on punting and holding."

Is Kluwe at risk of losing his job?

The Vikings Age blog suggests that may be next, and Kluwe might want to "dial it back" a bit.
