Chad Greenway had seven tackles, including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's win over Green Bay.
The veteran linebacker was able to hold up through the season after injuries shortened his 2014 campaign. While he didn't register the gaudy tackle numbers he has in the past, Greenway was still a relatively effective cog in the Minnesota Vikings ' defensive scheme. Still, Greenway will be a 33-year-old unrestricted free agent this spring and with the Vikings continuing to get younger on that side of the ball, he could very well need to take another bargain-level contract to remain with the club.
Chad Greenway had eight total tackles and played every snap on defense in Thursday's loss to Arizona, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Greenway usually comes off the field in passing situations, but he stayed in the entire game with Anthony Barr hurt. Greenway could continue to see a spike in tackle totals if Barr remains out.
With Eric Kendricks back after a two-game absence due to a rib injury, Greenway returned to a smaller role where he exits the field in passing situations. Greenway had moved to middle linebacker and played a full game with Kendricks hurt. However, Greenway was back at weak-side linebacker Sunday.
Chad Greenway had eight total tackles and played 63 snaps in Sunday's win at Oakland.
Greenway continues to get extra snaps with Eric Kendricks (ribs) hurt as he's staying in on passing downs where he sat before. Greenway could continue to sit in nickel packages and passing situations when Kendricks returns.
Chad Greenway had ten total tackles and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's win over St. Louis.
Greenway got more playing time with middle linebackers Eric Kendricks and Audie Cole hurt. Greenway had been coming off the field in nickel packages and passing situations, but he could stay on the field in those situations if Kendricks doesn't return next week.
