While not as widely anticipated or potentially as notorious as the Ted Wells report regarding the harassment on Jonathan Martin in Miami, another investigative report arising from a complaint made by an NFL player is coming soon.
And Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report reports that the report will be “favorable” to Kluwe. Reportedly.
That means the report likely will be unfavorable to Vikings special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer, who was retained by new coach Mike Zimmer after the termination of Leslie Frazier.
Kluwe claims that Priefer made homophobic comments in Kluwe’s presence, and that the Vikings ultimately cut Kluwe in retaliation for his gay-rights activism.
The Vikings hired outside lawyers to conduct the investigation, and Kluwe has from time to time expressed concern that the investigation would sweep the situation under the rug. If the report about the report is correct, that won’t be the case.
