Chad Greenway signs Vikings franchise tender

Chad Greenway signed his free agent tender with the Vikings on Tuesday, the team announced.

That means Greenway, the team's leading tackler in 2010, will make a one-year salary in 2011 of more than $10 million. That's based on the average of the top five salaries at the linebacker position.

Greenway was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2011, and the Vikings are believed to be interested in working out a long-term deal the former Iowa star.

That won't be happening until the NFL and union reach a new labor agreement, however.

Tagging Greenway meant the Vikings couldn't use the franchise tag on wide receiver Sidney Rice -- there's still a good chance that they'll tender him with an RFA tag by the deadline of 3 PM EST on Thursday.
