    Vikings OLB Chad Greenway happy and healthy

    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

    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.
