Kluwe: Cut due to outspoken views

Locke and Vikings kicker  Blair Walsh both offered their support of Priefer on Thursday.

"I have had countless conversations and interactions with coach Priefer, and I personally can attest to his integrity and character," Walsh said in a statement he released directly to reporters. "His professionalism in the workplace is exemplary, and I firmly believe that my teammates would whole-heartedly agree. The allegations made today are reprehensible and totally not compatible with what Mike Priefer stands for. ...

" In my time here at Minnesota, Rick Spielman and Leslie Frazier have exemplified true leadership. Contrary to Chris' statements, they have promoted a workplace environment that was conducive for success. At no time did I ever feel suppressed or that I could not be myself.

" I firmly stand behind Rick Spielman, Leslie Frazier, and Mike Priefer."

Locke offered his take on Priefer on Twitter:
