Description: The Vikings have slapped the franchise tag on LB Chad Greenway.
Insight: Sidney Rice and Ray Edwards were the other candidates, but the Vikings made the right choice. Greenway is one of the best 4-3 linebackers in the game right now, having finished 2010 with a total of 144 tackles. He is expected to make a little over $10 million in 2011 if the two sides don't come up with a long-term agreement.
