Vikings Agree To Settlement With Former Punter Kluwe
The Minnesota Vikings and former punter Chris Kluwe officially ended their seven-month long battle today, agreeing to a settlement that calls for the Vikings to make donations to several LGBT charities and anti-hate groups, as well as supporting a fundraiser. Kluwe does not receive any money in the agreement.
Earlier in the year, Kluwe accused special teams coach Mike Priefer of making anti-gay comments during team practices in 2012. The Vikings had suspended Priefer for the first three games of this regular season as a result of findings from their independent investigation.
Kluwe had threatened to sue the Vikings after the team failed to make public the results from their investigation. Part of the settlement included allowing Kluwe and his attorney to review the entire report.
