The GOAT of GOAT’s decided he’ll have one more go around. Chad Greenway is truly one of the best and a pro’s pro. He announced it today via twitter.

Truly a sad, sad day in Minnesota. Viking from beginning to end. He has been my favorite Viking since he was drafted out of the University of Iowa. He was electric in college along side Abdul Hodge. One of the best linebacking cores in Big Ten history.


Right now, Greenway ranks third in all-time tackles for the Vikings at 735. The leader, Carl Lee, has 771. He is almost certain to break that next year solidifying himself as the best linebacker in Vikings history. He has had to deal with a lot of bull shit with the Vikings, from Brad Childress, to Brett Favre, to Leslie Frazier. He has been the steady, consistent leader for the Vikes. They now have a couple of the best, young linebackers in the NFL, Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks so the timing is perfect. Chad helped mold those guys into professionals and left a great legacy behind. Thank you Chad for a wonderful career.
