Re: Vikings Sign Greenway To Contract Extension
About time. Like others have said this frees up a lot of cap space. Now just get Peterson done. This should also leave plenty of room to maybe make one more signing.None

I didn't see numbers anywhere as to how much cap space was freed up & know Cam took a big cut from his $1.7 mil, but no numbers were tossed out.
Greenway: Tagged as the team's franchise player in February, Greenway was set to earn $10.091 million in base salary and count the same amount against the salary cap. For that reason, the Vikings have been working all summer on an extension that would lessen the cap hit and ensure his long-term status with the team.
Heading into the weekend, the Vikings were less than $400,000 below the salary cap. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the five-year deal is worth $40 million, but we don't yet know its first-year cap number to help us calculate the cap savings. Look for an update on that in the coming days.
