I still say cutting Antoine Winfield the Vikes secondary is no worse off then when Winfield was with the Vikes. In 2011 The Vikings tied for the lowest interception total in the NFL with 8.
-The Vikings set a new NFL record by going nine full games without an interception, The Vikings' secondary was so bad opposing coaches were calling Leslie Frazier and saying, "Dude, you need to fix this." in 2012 the Vikes signed coach Alan Williams from the Colts. Don't ask me why I'm still at a loss of words for that. In his 10 years as defensive backs coach his unit finished in the bottom 1/3 of the league 6 times so who know what the Vikings was thinking when they signed him. Statistically this was the worst secondary in football in 2012 giving up an average of 8.1 yards per attempt (30th NFL), 34 TD (32nd), while picking off only 8 passes (T-31st) and allowing opposing QBs to post a mind-boggling 107.6 QB Rating. Winfield was never any help in the secondary & them stats show he wasn't.

Winfield was a sure tackler though and good against the run.I think he was rated number one in the slot last year.Correct me if Im wrong.Still he was 36 and his days are numbered so were just doing the inevitable.Ive heard Robinson is doing pretty well.

That's true but still look at the INTs & forced fumbles. Winfield was no help where it mattered most. & he could no longer hang with the faster receiver. I like the speed of Robinsion, not many receivers will run away form him. He did get turned around by receivers a few times last season but that's all part of learning as a rookie. I think he was a good pick.
