• Chad Greenway gets Pro Bowl nod after all

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jan 10, 2013
    Chad Greenway is Pro Bowl bound after all. Linebacker Chad Greenway will get his second trip to the Pro Bowl, replacing Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware. Thursday's news: Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was added to the NFC roster after DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys withdrew. Greenway becomes the first Vikings linebacker to attend back-to-back Pro Bowls since Scott Studwell went in 1987 and 1988. But Greenway didn’t make the NFC roster after fan and player voting was completed, handicapped in big part by logistics that group traditional linebackers together with defensive-end types that play outside linebacker in 3-4 systems. It was a season worthy of serious Pro Bowl consideration. The Vikings’ unlikely turnaround from 3-13 to 10-6 has resulted in another opportunity for a player to swap a week of wintry Minnesota for sunny Honolulu.
