Vikings, Kluwe reach settlement, avoid lawsuit

The Minnesota Vikings and former punter Chris Kluwe have worked out a settlement avoiding a potential lawsuit from Kluwe.

The dispute involved Kluwe threatening to sue for over $10 million because he said the team wouldn't release a full investigative report into his allegations that special teams coach Mike Priefer made homophobic remarks.

Priefer has been suspended for three games.

A joint press conference with details of the settlement is set for next week.
