Im still hoping Winfield unretires and comes back to retire a Viking where he belongs.I know theres some hard feelings with management but its a business and Winfield was always a fan favorite and spent 9 years here.As time passes hell regret retiring as a Seahag.

Antoine Winfield Didn't want it to show on his record he was Cut, So he retired. His pride stood in the way I think.... anyway Winfield played for Buffalo for five years. His numbers with the Bills was a joke & at the time everyone was saying why did the Vikes pick him up. The Vikes secondary was never any good with him in the backfield. the rankings show that. The Vikes secondary was always last or near last with Winfield in the backfield. I liked him as a person & he was always respectful to everyone, but I did'nt think he was great as defensive back. He had a total of 7 sacks with the team in 7 years & 21 INTs in 7 years is average & only 2 of them was returned for a TD. Where Winfield stood out was assist tackles. he was always near the ball or the other player that was in on the assist. Does that make a good player I guess it does in that way. but over all he was average if you look at the Vikings secondary rankings. I do wish him well But I didn't think it was a big loss when he signed with the Seahawks for more money. You know he still wants to play or he wouldn't have signed with the Seahawks in the first place. I think his pride will stand in the way to come back to the Vikings if ask. I bet he wishes he took the Vikes offer they made him now.
