07:56 PM ET 09.01 | Teams spent Saturday cutting down their roster to the final 53-men, but the Oakland Raiders weren't done with their roster cuts just yet. On Sunday afternoon, after releasing fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson, punter Chris Kluwe announced on Twitter that his time with the Raiders has come to an end. Kluwe is a fan favorite for his outspoken nature and his hilarious comments on Twitter, but the team chose to go in a younger direction with their roster.

Ok, haters. Please say he was cut because he's outspoken, rather than the rookie outperforming him.

Should have spent more time practicing punting, unless you're as good as you get.

Sorry to disappoint you, but even Chris admitted Marquette King had a bigger leg.

The same thing happened in N.E. with the incumbent Mesko being waived in favor of rookie Allen.

Kluwe wrote a great article for MMQB that talked about him helping King with his drop and that it may cost him his job. But he did it anyway because he never got help as a rookie. Cool dude. Wish him the best in whatever he ends up doing. He's built for more than football.

If the coach felt he'd help the team win, he wouldn't care about what Chris said about his mother.
