Raiders sign veteran punter Chris Kluwe


The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran punter Chris Kluwe to a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum. Kluew was recently let go by the Minnesota Vikings due to his mediocre play and $1.45 million contract.

Kluwe will replace Shane Lechler who moved on to Houston this off-season.

“I’m excited to be an Oakland Raider and be playing in California,” Kluwe told Brandon Ayanbedjo of Fox Sports. “Now, my family can actually come to games.”

Kluwe’s torn left meniscus is expected to be healed prior to the start of camp.
