MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is backing away from his threat to sue the team over alleged discrimination - for now.
Kluwe vowed last week 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 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.
Kluwe attorney Clayton Halunen said he and Vikings attorney Joe Anthony had both agreed to recommend to their clients that they continue settlement discussions. A Vikings spokesman didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
