Vikings OLB Chad Greenway signed his franchise tender with the team on Tuesday, which will make his 2011 salary between $10 and $12 million, depending on what is agreed upon in the next Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The use of the franchise tag is being contested by the NFLPA, but in all likelihood, Greenway will be a Viking whenever the 2011 season begins. In his each of previous four seasons with the team, the outside 'backer has registered at least 99 tackles.
