(CBS Sports) – The Minnesota Vikings released punter Chris Kluwe after eight years with team and after the team drafted a punter in this year’s draft. Kluwe has made headlines for being outspoken on his political views, especially on gay rights and some believe it had to do with his release from the Vikings.

Kluwe talked with CBS Sports’ John Feinstein about his release and how the news blindsided him.

“Before the draft I had no idea,” Kluwe said. “No one had told me that that was kind of the direction the team was moving in.”

Though there is a lot of speculation Kluwe was released because of his outspoken ways, he can’t say for sure that the decision was based upon his actions.

“I don’t know,” Kluwe said. “I’m not in those meetings. I don’t know what’s said between management, what’s said between coaches. And all I can do is go out and punt to the best of my abilities and trust in the body of work I have compiled over the years and hope I get a chance to latch on with another team.”
