Thread: Antoine Winfield Retires
09-05-2013, 10:15 PM #31
Longtime Viking and current Seattle Seahawk Antoine Winfield is likely to be cut this weekend and back out on the free agent market per CBS Sports Jason LaCanfora.....This presents an interesting scenario for the Vikings. For one, he knows the defense extremely well having spent 9 seasons here. Secondly, his children still live in the Twin Cities attending local schools
No, he still lives in Minnesota in Eden Prairie and his children goto school here. He plans to continue his retirement here and as such, is local to us.
Frazier has texted him saying if he needs anything, as a retired player or interested in playing again, that he should call Frazier.
Now, Winfield is a prideful guy and if he thinks he can't cut it, he won't come back. The question is prideful enough that he wouldn't come back to a team that just cut him and realizes they made a mistake.

I would take him back in a heart beat. Watching him tackle, sack, force fumble, fumble recover and score was awesomePurple till i die
Antoine Winfield Retires
That was like 5 years ago. It was fun watching moss in 1998 but bringing him back would not mean we were getting the same player

I hope Webby is right and he is still in town, but I think it would be hard to get him to come back.
