    Winfield is big part of Vikings' success

    Winfield said the only idea he's not open to is moving to safety. "Either I'm on the outside or at the nickel," he said. "I'll never move back to the safety."
    Winfield said he is open to eventually moving exclusively to the inside position in the nickel and giving up his starting role outside. Of course, NFL teams are now often in the nickel defense because of the amount of passing that goes on.

    "I could see that happening," Winfield said. "I don't know when, don't have a timetable but definitely. I could play nickel easily two or three more years. That's my home position."
    There you go, no more talk about Winfield moving to safety.

    He may have a lost a step, but he is still making a lot of impact on this team. 2nd in tackles (behind Greenway), 2nd in tackles for a loss (behind Jared), 1st in INT's, 2nd in passes defended (behind Smith). Not bad for a 35 year old corner.
