Chris Greenwood (born July 10, 1989) is an American football cornerback who is currently a free agent. He played college football at Albion College, a Division III school.[1] He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Greenwood attended Martin Luther King High School, where he was teammates with Nick Perry, Styles Young, and Darrin Williams.

The Lions released Greenwood on August 31, 2013, and re-signed him to their practice squad.

The Dallas Cowboys signed Greenwood off the Lions' practice squad to their 53-man roster[2] on September 25, 2013, but was released again less than a month later when Demarcus Ware got hurt and the Cowboys needed help at defensive line.[3] The Lions quickly signed Greenwood back to their practice squad after he turned down multiple practice squad offers to return to his hometown team.[4]

Greenwood did not adjust well enough to Teryl Austin's new defensive philosophy and was released by Detroit in the final cutdowns on August 30, 2014. The Vikings added him to their practice squad on September 1, 2014.[5] He was signed to the Baltimore Ravens active roster on December 17, 2014.[6] Greenwood was placed on IR on August 31, 2015. On September 2, 2015, Greenwood was released by the Ravens with an injury settlement.[7]

The New England Patriots signed Greenwood to their practice squad on November 18, 2015. They released him on December 10, 2015.

Greenwood is the nephew of former NBA players, Barry Wayne Stevens & Jeff Grayer Sr.
