    Still deciding between the Vikings and Seahawks is what was last said. When did you hear this?

But to get there they signed too many free agent contracts and did poorly in the mid to late round drafts as well and that put us in a bad spot.

    So the issue was drafting correct? It wasn't the contract because had they drafted well in the mid rounds, when contracts came due, we would have been able to restock talent with young players.

    I don't think he comes back. I think he goes Seattle.

    After unceremoniously cutting him this offseason, the Vikings, who have been a huge part of Winfield's life, have tried desperately to get him back. The team has expressed remorse for how it handled his release. Ownership has reached out to Winfield to apologize,
    Is ownership happy with Spielman's handling of Winfield?

    Good luck to him and time to see how the Vikes will shape their secondary without him.

    ESPN ScoreCenter alert just said that Winfield signed to a one year deal with the Seahawks. Haven't found a link for it yet.

    If he wants a ring before he retires I would have to say that the Sea Hawks are his best bet at this point.

    Bummer....a little interested to see the contract details for signing bonus etc

    Now time for some sour grapes

    Hope they don't treat him like Chester Taylor when he went to the bears

    Haven't seen a team so superbowl ready in April like the hawks since the eagles.....and by the end of November they were turkeys (bird theme joke)

    Actually really enjoyed Winfields years as a Viking and being the the Pacific Northwest I'll get to see how he does with the westcoast Viking and will be more fun than seeing Jackson, if Antoine does get a ring I'd be much happier for him than when Mckinnie got his that is for sure.
