The Vikings and Greenway agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greenway thus confirmed his offseason intentions to play one more season and complete his career with one organization. While his usage tumbled to 59 percent of the defensive snaps in 2015, he

fared well in his move to weak-side linebacker, yielding 68 tackles (55 solo), 2.5 sacks, and one interception for a touchdown for IDP pursuits.

Greenway had seven tackles, including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran linebacker was able to hold up through the season after injuries shortened his 2014 campaign. While he didn't register the gaudy tackle numbers he has in the past, Greenway was still a relatively effective cog in the Vikings' defensive scheme. Still, Greenway will be a 33-year-old unrestricted free agent this spring and with the Vikings continuing to get younger on that side of the ball, he could very well need to take another bargain-level contract to remain with the club.

Greenway had eight total tackles and played every snap on defense in Thursday's loss to Arizona, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greenway usually comes off the field in passing situations, but he stayed in the entire game with

Anthony Barr hurt. Greenway could continue to see a spike in tackle totals if Barr remains out.

Greenway had one tackle and played just 22 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

With Eric Kendricks back after a two-game absence due to a rib injury, Greenway returned a smaller role where he leaves the field in passing situations. Greenway had moved to middle linebacker and and played a full game with Kendricks hurt. He was back at weak-side linebacker Sunday.

Greenway had eight total tackles and played 63 snaps in Sunday's win at Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Greenway continues to get extra snaps with Eric Kendricks (ribs) hurt as he's staying in on passing downs where he sat before and playing middle linebacker instead of weak-side linebacker. Greenway could continue to sit in nickel packages and passing situations when Kendricks returns.

Greenway had ten total tackles and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Greenway got more playing time with middle linebackers Eric Kendricks and Audie Cole hurt. Greenway had been coming off the field in nickel packages and passing situations, but he could stay on the field in those situations if Kendricks doesn't return next week.

Greenway had three total tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

He played 27 of 54 snaps on defense as he continues to sit in passing situations. His limited snap count hurts his IDP value as a result.

Greenway had just one tackle, but intercepted a pass and returned it 91 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Greenway had a big play with the interception return, but he played just 20 snaps on defense. He continues to be on the sidelines when opposing offenses are in passing situations, which will limit his fantasy value.

Greenway had two total tackles and played just 16 snaps in Sunday's win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

With Detroit playing from behind and using three-receiver sets frequently, Greenway was on the bench during nickel and dime packages. This may become a frequent theme as the Vikings look to reduce his snap count at age 32 to keep him fresh this season.
