That's after the team announced Friday that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will be suspended for three games following a 6 month investigation into accusations made by former punter Chris Kluwe that Priefer made anti-gay remarks in a team setting during the 2012 season.

Priefer, who denied the remarks earlier this year, apologized Friday in a statement.

The situation does not appear to be over, Chris Kluwe has told multiple outlets that he plans to file a lawsuit against the Vikings next week.
