About Chris Kluwe:
Christopher James "Chris" Kluwe is a former American football punter. He played at Los Alamitos High School in Los Alamitos, California where he was a 1999 USA Today High School All-American, and then attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he played college ball for the UCLA Bruins. He was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2005 and played professionally in the National Football League for the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. Kluwe's most notable tenure was his eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, where he had a very tense relationship with the team owners and coaching staff due to his outspoken views. He set eight individual team records. Kluwe was released by the Vikings after the 2012 season. He then signed with the Oakland Raiders prior to the 2013 season, but was subsequently released. Kluwe was unable to catch on with another NFL team and so retired from professional football in 2013.
