Vikings, Foley Reportedly Settle Grievance

The Minnesota Vikings have reached a settlement with former front-office chief Fran Foley, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The Vikings hired Foley as their vice president of player personnel in January but fired him in early May, apparently upset with his gruff interactions with others in the organization and reports of inaccuracies in his resume. Foley charged the Vikings with wrongful termination and filed a grievance. The league office was to conduct an arbitration hearing but that won't be necessary now that the case has been settled.

The Vikings hired Rick Spielman, the former general manager of the Miami Dolphins, in late May to replace Foley.
