There has been speculation that Vikings outside linebacker Chad Greenway is angling for a new contract. For the most part, Greenway has sidestepped the issue. Thursday, however, he discussed the matter directly with The Daily Republic, a local newspaper from his home state of South Dakota:
“It’s one of those necessary evils,” Greenway said Thursday following the first day of his fourth-annual dual sports camp at Mitchell High School. “You have to do it, not now though. I have a full year left on my contract and I’m going to honor that and do what I need to do. I wouldn’t be a South Dakotan if I didn’t honor my word that way.
“At the same time, obviously, I want what I’ve earned and what I deserve and, eventually, I think that will happen.”
