Greenway Gets Franchise Tag



Bookmark and Share

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have placed the franchise tag on linebacker Chad Greenway.

    The Vikings announced the decision Monday. Greenway has led the team in tackles for three straight seasons. He was chosen the team's 2010 defensive MVP and had 149 tackles.

    Greenway will be entering his sixth season in the league, including a rookie season that he sat out with a knee injury.     If the franchise tag designation stays in its current form in the next collective bargaining agreement, Greenway stands to make nearly $10 million next season. But the Vikings would like to get a
long-term deal done with the 28-year-old, which would negate that number.

    Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says Greenway is "an important part of our team and his play speaks for itself."
