The Vikings have placed the franchise tag on LB Chad Greenway.

Greenway is coming off one of his better seasons, his fifth in the NFL, and likely will be eligible for unrestricted free agency. Although the new CBA has yet to be agreed upon, it's possible that fifth-year players will be eligible to hit the market.

Not Greenway, however. He had a strong season amid a disappointing team performance in 2010, leading the club in tackles.

The franchise tender could be in the range of $10 million for a one-year deal if Greenway does not sign a long-term contract.

This means the Vikings will not place the tag on other potential free agents, including DE Ray Edwards and WR Sidney Rice.
