Vikings Place Franchise Tag On Greenway
The Vikings placed the franchise tag on linebacker Chad Greenway Monday meaning he's in line to receive a 1-year contract offer that is worth the average of the top 5 salaries at linebacker last season or about $10 Million. The Vikings also expect to dicuss a long term contract. The Vikings tendered him the non-exclusive franchise tag meaning another team could sign him and give the Vikings 2 first round picks as compensation. Greenway led the Vikings in tackles in each of the last 3 seasons.
