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.
"I'm just getting back into working out, starting back on my lower body," he said. "It feels good. I'd been taking some time off, but I have been testing it a little bit."
Greenway had his least productive season as a pro in 2014, recording 93 tackles, his lowest total in his career, and just one sack. He is entering the final year of his contract and is due a base salary of $7 million. Though they is speculation he will restructure the deal, Greenway is just controlling what he can.
"We're still under contract," Greenway said. "We'll just see what they say."
Greenway said he would like to stay with Minnesota and indicated he is open to restructuring his contract.
"[It's been a] pretty good relationship for the most part," Greenway said. "You hope that you can make that work. Being a loyal guy myself, I just want to be able to do that. At the same point, you understand that it’s a business and you have to make the correct decision when it comes up."
Greenway has finished with 90-plus tackles in eight straight seasons. He has totaled 992 tackles in his career.
