EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Chris Kluwe still has his day job. He just hasn't been doing it as well as he and the Vikings would like.
Minnesota's outspoken punter has a gross average of 43.8 yards per attempt this season. That ranks only 24th in the NFL among those with enough tries to qualify for the leaders.
The eighth-year veteran even got booed by the home crowd in his last game, when a 20-yard shank went out of bounds following a three-and-out by the offense to give Tampa Bay the ball at its 42 in the first quarter and set up a field goal.
Because of the increasing profile Kluwe has kept off the field with his activism on behalf of gay marriage rights, suggestions have come that he's not focused enough on his punting.
