I really find it hard to believe that the off the field media (twitter, FB, news feeds) had anything to do with the decision. Why? becuase it was pushed by the NFL as + things being said by players, when there was soooo much - being said by idiotic or.. stunt minded players.. If they really wanted it shut down, they coulda very easily just brushed over it as with other bad news they push under the carpet.
I do believe this was a, youth, $, and skill decision.. Kluwe while he was good, was never GREAT.. and could not do the multi facets that our rookie seems to be able to do. as far as compitation? really? did you really expect there to be compitition with a 5th round pick?
I'm glad they didn't drag it out, this gives chris a chance to catch on with another team, and work with their people to get settled in. instead of saying.. ohh your stuck here till the season starts.. then he'd be fcked..
Good Luck Kluwe, go kill in Astaroth for a while, Orgimar bar hang out or something until the phone rings.
