Minnesota Vikings reach agreement with disgruntled punter Chris Kluwe


When punter Chris Kluwe left the Minnesota Vikings, he did not go quietly. Ever since his departure Kluwe has been on a crusade regarding homophobic comments that were made by the Vikings’ coaching staff during his time with the team.

After being released by the team Kluwe threatened to sue. Today comes news that the Vikings have reached an agreement with him.

Here’s what Kluwe had to say about the deal on Twitter:

He ended the discussion with a shot at the detractors who have been hounding him since the controversy began:

I like that Kluwe did not get any money out of it and instead it will be going towards LGBT organizations. The Vikings released their own statement via owner Zygi Wilf:

“We appreciate Chris Kluwe’s contributions to the Minnesota Vikings as a player and a member of this organization during his eight seasons in which he established many team records as our punter, and we wish him and his family the best in the future… In regards to this matter, our focus remains on maintaining a culture of tolerance, inclusion and respect, and creating the best workplace environment for our players, coaches and staff.”
