Chris Kluwe picks Oakland Raiders camp over White House visit

Chris Kluwe has drawn a lot of attention for his political activity, primarily his advocacy of gay marriage. Many people questioned if that activism cost Kluwe his spot on the Minnesota Vikings' roster this offseason. Kluwe was one of the NFL's best punters, averaging 44.4 yards over his eight years in Minnesota, yet the Vikings cut him after drafting UCLA's Jeff Locke in the fifth round.
I have to say, the Vikings decisions surrounding Chris Kluwe baffles me a little. Kluwe was a good punter and Jeff Locke is not much different from the very little I've heard from camp. That's good, but I imagined that the Vikings would only replace Kluwe with a special kind of punter (especially with a 5th round pick). Someone that rarely comes around. But I will not let that be the verdict. It all will be revealed when the season starts.
