The Minnesota Vikings have announced that linebacker Chad Greenway, one of the most popular and productive players in Vikings history, has played his last NFL football game.

According to the team, Greenway will officially announce his retirement from the NFL at a press conference Tuesday, March 7, at the Vikings Winter Park headquarters.

The 2006 first-round draft pick quickly became a fan favorite and was a team leader both on the field as a player and off the field as a community leader.

According to Vikings.com, here is where Chad Green ranks among all time Vikings greats:

I loved the way Chad played the game and as the Vikings look to replace him on the field, they also have to try to find a way to replace his leadership in the locker room.
