Look, There are lots of teams with crappy secondaries and none of them are banging on his door either. Yeah, I understand he was a great tackler and all but he has not been consistently healthy for a few years, he is getting older, and there is a reason he is sitting at home right now and it isn't because he had his number unlisted.
Yeah, we need help in the secondary, that was also the case when he was here, but we need to fix that with youth and not a guy that is 35 years old, unless he is hired as a coach.
1) Winfield isn't sitting at home due to lack of offers. He said I will only comeback for the right situation. I.e. a championship team. The two teams that he considered going to are 2-8. He's not coming back for that.
2) Does he make this team better this season than who we have on roster? Yes. End of discussion. We can't draft in the middle of the season so we shouldn't worry about fixing the secondary with draft picks. He's better than Sherels and Robinson at this point.
