Chad Greenway: For three years, Greenway has been a consistent linebacker for the Vikings. While the Vikings took a step back in 2010, the Iowa product took a step forward and has become an elite 4-3 outside linebacker.

He’s an instinctive, well-rounded player who excels at stopping the run at the line of scrimmage. The Saints need someone like Greenway to solidify the LB corps and he would be a great fit opposite of Jonathan Vilma.

Even though Greenway didn’t play a down in his rookie year in 2006, he has been outstanding since his solphmore season in the NFL. His numbers are up there with the top 5 linebackers in the league.

Since 2007 he has started every game totalling 64 games, with 463 tackles, 7  sacks, 7 forced fumbles and 1 touchdown. Greenways number’s are very similar to another outstanding linebacker in this league, Jonathan Vilma.
