Saturday July 19th, 2014

Former punter Chris Kluwe, who has already stated his intention to sue the Vikings for wrongful termination, went off on the team on his Twitter account on Friday.

Earlier in the day, Kluwe's lawyer called the team's report detailing an investigation into homophobic slurs by an assistant coach in 2012 to be a "scrubbed" version of what actually happened. The organization suspended the coach, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, three games on Friday night.

The 32-year-old Kluwe is alleging the Vikings cut him in May 2013 because of his outspoken support of same-sex marriage. Kluwe was with Minnesota for eight seasons.
