Minnesota Vikings place franchise tag on Chad Greenway, Sidney Rice's return uncertain

The Minnesota Vikings will use their franchise tag on linebacker Chad Greenway, according to the team.

The franchise number for linebacker should bring Greenway's salary to close to $10 million in 2011. All indications are Minnesota will try and work on a long-term deal with Greenway after a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is reached.

The Vikings still must decide what to do with free agent Wide receiver Sidney Rice, who was believed to be a candidate for the franchise tag. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports the Vikings have no plans to use its transition tag on Rice as of right now.
