Vikings' Chad Greenway Selected To 2nd Pro Bowl

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) -- Chad Greenway didn't get snubbed from the NFC Pro Bowl after all.

The Minnesota Vikings announced Thursday that linebacker Greenway -- who recorded a personal-best 191 tackles in 2012 – has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl. He's replacing Dallas Cowboys' linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

Greenway is now the first Vikings linebacker to attend back-to-back Pro Bowls since Scott Studwell in 1987 and 1988.

In addition to 191 tackles, he had seven tackles for a loss, three sacks, two fumble recoveries and one interception.

Greenway is the fifth Viking selected to the 2012 Pro Bowl, joining Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, Jerome Felton and Blair Walsh.
