Antoine Winfield Will Conisder Return To NFL


Former Minnesota Vikings DB Antoine Winfield is considering returning to the game. He was released by the Seattle Seahawks in preseason and had intentions to file his retirement papers, but he never actually got that done.

He has been working out in Houston and said that he would consider coming back if he can find the right situation. I am sure that he would want to play for a winner or he likely would consider returning to the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately, the Vikings have stumbled out of the gate.

“Antoine definitely appreciates coach (Leslie Frazier), and some of his best friends in life play on that team right now,” agent Ashanti Webb told Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press two weeks ago. “He was there for basically a decade, so Minnesota will always hold a special place in his heart. But I haven’t heard anything substantive from them to bring back to Antoine.”

So Antoine would love to go back to Minnesota. I am sure that there are other teams in the league that would love to get some help in the secondary also.

    I think he’s blowing smoke!? He had a great gig in Buffalo and left for more money. He went to Minni, another bad franchise because in his lack of intelligence he thought they were going to win, now he wants back at Minni?? A team with a terrible QB! To win?? I don’t think so. GO BILLS!!

        SO true, he’s a mercenary. Often we see players whose motivation borders on the non intelligent, like Winfield’s! He had a great gig in Buffalo, he wanted a better contract which the Bills offered, then he demanded more money, all to be front loaded, a clear example of his stupidness and greed!The sad thing is he will help any team that signs him. They just need to be aware of his bad, stupids!! GO BILLS!!
