MINNEAPOLIS - Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and the team have reached a settlement over alleged discrimination.

Kluwe vowed to sue because he was unhappy with the team's resolution of his complaint against special teams coordinator Mike Priefer for alleged anti-gay slurs.

The team and Kluwe's attorneys returned to the negotiation table, which delayed the filing of a lawsuit. On Friday, Kluwe and his attorneys said that an agreement was reached.

The Vikings suspended Priefer for three games and made a donation to gay advocacy groups that was less than Kluwe wanted. He also accused the team of cutting him over his activism in favor of gay marriage in Minnesota, a claim the team denied.

The details of the agreement will be released next week, according to Kluwe's attorney Clayton Halunen.
