Seahawks Sign CB Antoine Winfield

The Seattle Seahawks have signed the former All-Pro cornerback Antoine Winfield to a 1-year contract this week, further strengthening the team’s already impressive defensive backfield. Winfield is a three-time Pro Bowler who was cut from the Minnesota Vikings a little over a month ago in order to free up $7.25 million in cap space. Although the Vikings were attempting to re-sign the veteran cornerback to a more cap-friendly deal, Winfield took the opportunity as a free agent to join the Seahawks. You can join the Seahawks at every game with a quality Seattle Seahawks CSL. Winfield is an experienced NFL player, having played for the Bills for 5 years before joining the Vikings for 8 years. Winfield had 101 combined tackles and 3 interceptions in 16 games last season, including 15 starts. The five-foot-nine, 180 pound player is not exceptionally big for a cornerback but compensates for his size with an aggressive style of play.

Regarding the acquisition of the talented cornerback, Seattle general manager John Schneider stated via ESPN that “This year we feel blessed. I think it's a testament to coach Carroll's staff and the way they treat the players as men. I think that's kind of gotten around the league and the competition thing is real here. I think players also feel they're going to be put into a position to accentuate their strengths.” According to the Seahawks official website, Winfield’s agent was “very aggressive” in trying to get the cornerback signed to Seattle.
