Antoine Winfield signs deal with Seahawks

NFL

Free-agent cornerback Antoine Winfield will sign a deal with the Seattle Seahawks, according to multiple reports. The 14-year veteran has spent the last nine years with the Minnesota Vikings. Last season, Winfield recorded 71 tackles while picking off three balls for interceptions.

Winfield, who will turn 36 in June, was selected in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. The veteran corner was released by the Vikings last month as he was set to make $7.25 million in 2013.

Winfield told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he is excited to join a Seattle secondary that he says has “some of the most talented players on defense in the NFL right now.”

It sure is awesome to find a starter like Wilson right out of the draft. Look at all the money it frees up for years to sign other players. He's only getting like $700K per year.

Why did LA Canfora get booted from NFL.com to  CBS? Was it because of his foolish tweets?
