'PTI:' NFL without Kluwe, Ayanbadejo

By Kevin Seifert


Tony Kornheiser raised an interesting point in this "Pardon the Interruption" video clip: How will NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reconcile his support of players who speak out on social issues at a time when two of them, Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo, were recently released?

Kornheiser thinks the NFL will have to find a way to get both of them jobs in 2013, while co-host Mike Wilbon isn't so sure. As we discussed earlier this week, there is plenty of gray area in the release of both players to offer the NFL cover. Kluwe is a 31-year-old punter coming off a down year, while Ayanbadejo will be 37 in September.
