Minnesota Vikings All-Pro outside linebacker Chad Greenway is entering his seventh NFL season (missed entire rookie season due to knee injury). Greenway grew up in Mount Vernon, South Dakota, a little more than five hours west of the Twin Cities, before attending college at the University of Iowa.
Because of his Upper Midwestern roots and hardnosed play on the field (tallied third most tackles in the NFL last season), Greenway has had no issue relating to Viking fans, since his Minnesota arrival, back in 2006.
Monday, in the time between morning walk-through and afternoon full padded practice at Vikings training camp, Greenway stopped to sign his signature and interact with a collection of fans, per the above iFolloSports.com original video.
Greenway fans can also take a look at another iFolloSports.com original story about the former first round pick’s communication with Vikings followers, last season, during a radio show appearance at the Sky Deck Sports Grille and Lanes in Mall of America.
