Details On Chad Greenways New Contract

September 6, 2011 by Nick in PLAYER NEWS

Earlier today we reported that Chad Greenway and the Minnesota Vikings came to an agreement on a long term deal. At that time no details of the contract were available.  Well, now their available!

According to the Star Tribune Chad Greenway signed a 5 year 41 million dollar contract!  The guaranteed money is north of 20 million dollars.

No immediate news has been released about Vikings star running back and his need for a new contract after this season.  Peterson did have a comment regarding Greenway’s new contract:

“He’s a great player. He pushes me, man, he makes me better. So to know that he’s here is definitely great for this organization.”

Don’t be surprised to see Peterson and company work out a long term deal early on in the season.  If talks break down the Vikings will surely use the franchise tag (as they did Greenway) to leverage some extra negotiating time.
