Antoine Winfield takes visit to Seahawks
By Kevin Seifert
When we last left the Antoine Winfield story, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was acknowledging his strong desire to talk Winfield back onto the team after his surprising release last month.
Winfield has since been courted by the Washington Redskins, who subsequently re-signed veteran DeAngelo Hall, but today he is visiting the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. The Seahawks have one of the NFL's strongest secondaries, led by All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, and adding Winfield as a nickel or dime back would seem an attractive luxury.
The Vikings haven't made a move to replace Winfield yet, but it's clear that he is intent on at least finding out what else is available to him before re-entering negotiations in Minnesota. Stay tuned.
