Chris Kluwe’s lawyer says the former Minnesota Vikings punter intends to sue the team over his allegations of anti-gay conduct by a coach.

Attorney Clayton Halunen says they’ll seek a copy of the Vikings’ internal investigation and make it public if they can. They accuse the Vikings of reneging on a pledge to release the report.

The Vikings hired two outside lawyers to examine Kluwe’s claims that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer used slurs and taunts to try to quash Kluwe’s outspoken support for gay marriage. Priefer denied the allegations.

Halunen told reporters Tuesday they’d still like to resolve the dispute out of court.

The Vikings issued a statement denying that they told Halunen they won’t release the report, and that both sides will meet again Thursday.
