The Vikings placed the franchise tag on linebacker Chad Greenway Monday meaning he's in line to receive a 1-year contract offer that is worth the average of the top 5 salaries at linebacker last season or about $10 Million.  The Vikings also expect to dicuss a long term contract.  The Vikings tendered him the non-exclusive franchise tag meaning another team could sign him and give the Vikings 2 first round picks as compensation.  Greenway led the Vikings in tackles in each of the last 3 seasons.
