Vikings Face Off Field Issues

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe  says he was released by the team before the season for his outspoken support of gay marriage.  Kluwe tells “Deadspin” that he was also the victim of homophobic comments by Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer.  Kluwe was let go by the Vikings in May after eight seasons.

Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson is dealing with his second DUI arrest in six weeks.  ESPN.com reports he was arrested in Chanhassen, Minnesota Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of drunken driving and refused a sobriety test.  Henderson was also arrested on November 19th and charged with drunken driving and possession of a controlled substance.
