On Monday morning the Vikings announced that they’ve designated Chad Greenway as their franchise player, which means the LB will be tendered a guaranteed 1-year contract for the 2011 season. Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said Greenway has improved each year in Minnesota and continues to be a team leader on and off the field.
This afternoon, Greenway has chimed in on the matter, too, and seems excited for the opportunity to play for Frazier as well as the opportunity to hopefully work out a long-term agreement with the Vikings that will leave him in Minnesota for years to come.
“I’m happy to know that the Vikings value me enough to make this move,” Greenway said. “I look forward to this season and playing for Coach Frazier, Coach Pagac and Coach Singletary. It’s been a goal of mine since getting drafted to play with the Vikings my whole career. I think we’re one step closer to that now. My family and I love living in the Twin Cities and I want to be a part of the Vikings for years to come. I feel like the team has a bright future and I want to be a part of that.”
