Former Vikings CB Antoine Winfield is expected to visit the Seahawks early next week, according to a source.

Sean Jensen ‏@seankjensen



The Vikings, we’re told, are actively trying to re-sign Winfield. And the Vikings have more to work with than washington does; they have $4.4 million in cap space while the Redskins have only $669,000.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/



Winfield's representatives have been in regular contact with the Vikings, but it remains unclear if a reunion will happen. His decision was on hold last week because he was on vacation.

At the right price I think he would be a great pick up for us.

I would love this pick up. He's exactly what we want in the slot.

I completely agree.

But Scrabble just signed with SF for 1.5 and 0 guaranteed. If we could get him on a simular contract we could still draft a nickel CB and let them fight it out.

Unless Leon McFadden were to fall to the 4th, we'd snag him, but aside from him if we sign Winfield I think that pretty much eliminates the need for a Nickel guy in 2013.

If we could get Winfield for that money I would love it. I have to believe he'll be a little more expensive, however. Maybe 2.5-3M per year for 2 years. I would definitely take that for what he offers. Great run defender where we need it and can be physical with his man inside.

If we sign him, I have to believe Percy Harvin will have some impact. If that's the case, you can essentially just add Winfield to the trade we made for Percy.

Id match that and use the usual Carroll/Schneider tricks to not let him leave without a deal. We've had alot of success at bringing guys in on very good value deals at vet like Winfield makes alot of sense ending up here.

Tho I really like the idea of Winfield, I really hope that PC and JS don't think we can go into next season with the current talent on the OL, especially the right side.

Really want to see atleast a guy like Winston brought in, preferably Clabo.

OG is the real issue. Breno is a decent enough starter. With a good OG next to him, he should be fine for now.

Question is who is that OG to put next to him? There's not a ton on the OG market. I think Clabo is a HUGE upgrade on Breno and could be cheaper as well.

Would love him to be our slot guy. Take care of this then focus on that OL. Not nearly as deep as I would want to be. It is great Russell can escape like he does, but he should not always need to.

I say the draft but there is definitely a better market for OT. If the $$ are right I'm all for bringing in a new OT and cutting Breno.

i agree completely! I think were set in the secondary if we sign him, between WT3 and him we will be fine. also if Tru signs for cheap again which i think he will and we will take him, I like Malcom Smith at Lber and if chris comes back strong we only really have to take OL Twisted Evil
