Oakland Raiders punter Chris Kluwe is giving fans the opportunity to see what it’s like to take part in an NFL training camp after getting his hands on a set of Google Glass.
Kluwe posted four videos from practice at the Raiders training camp home in Napa, Calif. to his YouTube account. Kluwe, one of the NFL’s more well spoken and entertaining faces, seemed to grasp the potential of Google Glass right away, making some impressive POV videos of what it is like to be a punter in the NFL.
The videos feature Kluwe catching and returning a punt, punting some balls himself and holding for kicker Sebastian Janikowski. He also handed the glasses to Janikowski to try for some field goal attempts. SeaBass, quite the entertainer himself, easily obliged to take part in the video session in a fun moment of camp.
Some of the videos contain some “not safe for work” language, so viewer discretion is advised (nobody ever said training camp was PG-13). Kluwe actually gives some interesting commentary while chatting with fellow punter Marquette King about punting techniques and the thoughts going through his head during the kicking process. Kluwe and King are currently battling for the Raiders punting job in Napa.
The St. Louis Rams also experimented with the technology during their offseason workouts.
The videos posted by Kluwe allow a unique opportunity to see inside the helmet of an NFL player and a vantage point fans just don’t have the ability to experience. Kluwe is one of the more entertaining personalities in the NFL and it shows once again in these videos that put fans right into the scene of an NFL punter or special teams player at training camp in some of the better videos to come out of the NFL this offseason.
