Vikings OLB Chad Greenway happy and healthy
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) The future is a great unknown to Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway. He is even unsure if this season will be his last in the NFL.
But the present feels pretty good despite losing games last year to broken ribs and a strained knee ligament, thereby losing his consecutive-game streak that had reached 115.
"Playing with four broken bones ... sort of humbles you a little bit, you realize," Greenway told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I don't care how old you are, that's going to be painful. You have to get over stuff like that and recover. And I came back and did some good things."
Good things like 93 tackles in 12 games. That did end a four-year run of 100-plus tackles, but the 32-year-old Greenway isn't concerned with such numbers now.
"I feel great," he said.
Vikings LB Chad Greenway unsure if he'll play beyond 2015
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway will play his 10th season with the team in 2015 but is unsure of whether he'll hang up his cleats at the end of the season, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
"I don’t know how it’s going to go," Greenway said Monday. "I’ll tell you I’m enjoying everything with the idea of, 'Who knows? We’ll see.' Ten years is sort of that unwritten (goal). Everyone wants to get there. We’ll see what happens."
Greenway ranked No. 38 out of 40 outside linebackers in a 4-3 scheme, per Pro Football Focus, but his teammates still see him as a pivotal part of the team.
"I love it," defensive end Everson Griffen said. "That’s a big leader. He was our defensive caller last year. When we didn’t have him in sometimes it was kind of rough to get the calls in, but having in him, he’s a big vocal point of our team. He’s a leader. He’s been here. This is his 10th season. So I’m happy the guy’s still here. I love him like a brother."
Greenway agreed to restructure his contract in late March to return to the Vikings for his 10th season.

Vikings want Chad Greenway back in 2015
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) With Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway in the final year of his contract, general manager Rick Spielman said the team wants to bring Greenway back in 2015, reports the StarTribune.
Greenway is due to make $7 million in 2015, but he may have to take a pay cut to remain with the Vikings.
"We have a lot of things that we'll be working through between now and before March 10th, but we'd love to have Chad Greenway back and finish [his career] as a Minnesota Viking," Spielman said.
|Is Chad Greenway slowing down? Many people think so after his ninth NFL season saw his stats decline -- but there's a reason for it. Greenway missed four games, which is why he didn't have his usual massive tackle numbers. However, a glance at his solo tackle numbers might give some pause for concern. In the four years prior to last season, Greenway averaged 5.9 solo hits per game. In 2014 that number fell to 4.7 total tackles per game. That might be a sign he's slowing down. So don't overvalue Greenway and figure him to regain his form since he might be heading the other way (and he's already thinking about 2015 being his last in the league). If you safeguard yourself and take him with a late pick, you'll be fine.
