Ted Wells is joining the Vikings legal team, a source close to the situation said, as the Vikings brace for a possible lawsuit from former punter Chris Kluwe.

Wells provided the NFL with a report earlier this year on the atmosphere of bullying in the Miami Dolphins locker room.

Kluwe and his attorney, Clayton Halunen, have threatened a lawsuit after the Vikings did not make public the complete report into allegations that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer used anti-gay language. The report concluded Priefer did, and he has been suspended for the first three games of the regular season.
