    Re: Greenway hopes to start contract discussions soon

    I don't care when they sign him, as long as it's before training camp.

    Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings still have no frontrunner for the starting middle linebacker job. Minnesota Vikings LB Napoleon Harris and LB Dontarrious Thomas will compete for the position at training camp.

    What that tells me is that no one player clearly stood out & we will have a mediocre MLB.

    Let's get the deal done, there is no excuse for a long holdout!

    [size=18px]Agent doesn't expect Greenway to sign before wedding[/size]

    Associated Press

    MINNEAPOLIS - First-round draft pick Chad Greenway will probably get hitched before he suits up for the Minnesota Vikings.

    Greenway's agent tells KSTP TV there's no chance the former University of Iowa star will sign before his wedding tomorrow.

    Greenway's agent, Marvin Demoff, and the Vikings opened contract talks last Monday in Denver. Demoff characterizes the meeting as exploratory and constructive.

    Greenway is a 242-pound linebacker from Mount Vernon, South Dakota. He led the Hawkeyes to two Big Ten titles in four years.

    Rookies report to Vikings training camp on July 27th. Greenway's agent doesn't anticipate a holdout.

    Interesting...this article breaks today...

    Vikings | Greenway likely to start training camp as a backup
    Thu, 13 Jul 2006 21:01:44 -0700

    Jeff Zulgad, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings rookie LB Chad Greenway will be used by Vikings at weakside linebacker. He likely will open training camp as backup to LB E.J. Henderson, but could assume starting role if Henderson is moved to middle.
    The article points out that Greenway is a backup to LB EJ Henderson. This comes at a time contract talks are going on. Is it an attempt to make the contract not a lucrative as if he had been mentioned as a starter?

    Is exploratory and constructive, good or bad?

    It depends on whether you're visiting a proctologist or negotiating a contract.

    Re: Greenway hopes to start contract discussions soon

    Greenway seems like a good, fair guy. Im sure he will sign a good contract before TC and then earn the big bucks in 3-4 years after he proves himself :razz: . And the MLB thing isnt good news unless we got so many good players(yeah right :roll: ) that there isnt enough starting spots to go around.
