Kluwe is starting to miss those big paychecks for kicking a ball 5 times a game. What didn't bother him that much a year ago really bothers him now that he's not getting paid.

Kluwe is not suing. He's not asking for any money. What are you taking about?

This internal investigation will cost a lot of money. Wilf money. The fans should ready themselves for another large set of blue plastic seats in another second-rate stadium. Oh, and you get a park too. How nice. Skol Kluwe!

Just go away Kluwe. You're not punting in the NFL anymore and you're only validating the reasons why no NFL team wanted to hire a loudmouth punter.

31 other NFL teams thought Kluwe was not worth signing. If you're a skilled player in the NFL, SOMEONE will sign you (ala Mike Vik), baggage real or perceived. I would have fired Kluwe when he kept punting directly to Reggie Bush in the Vikings-Saints playoff game, despite being explicitly told NOT to kick to Bush.
