MINNEAPOLIS — Chris Kluwe and the Vikings finalized a settlement Tuesday that ended the 7½-month saga surrounding the punter, who had accused the team of releasing him in May 2013 because of his outspoken support of same-sex marriage. The settlement, reached late last week and put in writing early this week, results in the Vikings making donations to five LGBT groups over the next five years. The amount the team will provide was not released, but Kluwe will receive no money.

MINNEAPOLIS — Theiren Cockran, the University of Minnesota’s sack leader last year, looks every bit like an NFL defensive end. The redshirt junior from Homestead, Florida., has just what the pros are looking for: size (at 6 feet 6, 255 pounds), speed (he runs 40 yards in 4.55 seconds) and reach (a 7-foot wingspan).
MANKATO — Two years ago, Vikings fullback Jerome Felton made the Pro Bowl. Now, there are rumblings he might not even make the team. Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner doesn’t appear to favor a two-running back set as much as previous offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave did. Felton didn’t start last Friday’s 10-6 victory over Oakland in the preseason opener as the Vikings opened in a two-tight-end set. And that formation ended up being used far more in the game than one with a fullback.
