Greenway’s return to the team leaves very little question about the Vikings ‘starting’ three linebackers entering the final month prior to the 2016 NFL draft.
A stalwart of the Vikings defense for the last decade, Greenway will likely play his last season in 2016 and thankfully retire a Viking.
With 735 career tackles, Greenway is third all-time in Vikings franchise history and has a chance to surpass Carl Lee who is currently first with 771 tackles.
Drafted out of Iowa in 2006, Greenway has fit in with the Vikings organization from the get go and has been a longtime fan favorite.
Greenway returns at the age of 33 with one goal in mind: becoming a Super Bowl Champion. He must feel good about the Vikings chances of contending in 2016.
