EDEN PRARIE, MN - Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway signed his tender offer on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old stands to make $10 million in 2011 -- the average salary of the top five players at the position last season -- according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The Iowa product, whom the Vikings franchised on February 21, led the team in tackles for the third straight season, registering 149 stops in 2010.

Greenway hasn't sat out a game since a knee injury forced him to miss his entire rookie season in 2006.

In 64 career games, Greenway has notched 6 1/2 sacks and five interceptions.
