(Minneapolis, MN) -- Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe minced no words in an article written for the website Deadspin yesterday. Kluwe called former head coach Leslie Frazier and general manager Rick Spielman "cowards" in the piece and ripped assistant coach Mike Priefer by calling him a "bigot." Kluwe was released in the spring, and believes he was cut because of his outspoken support for marriage equality for gay couples. He accused Priefer of making gay slurs, to which the special teams coach responded by saying he "vehemently" denies the accusations and does "not tolerate discrimination of any type."
