Despite being on vacation, 1500 ESPN writer Tom Pelissero is still scooping everyone else.
Pelissero reports that former Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks, where all former Vikings seem to end up, on Wednesday. Winfield has also been on vacation, which has played a part in the delay of him signing with any team. Winfield previously met with the Washington Redskins’ brass, but no deal was reached and the have since re-signed DeAngelo Hall.
Winfield was surprisingly released by the Vikings do to a salary that exceeded $7 million, but even at age 35 can provide an NFL team with great veteran leadership and some of the best overall play at his position.
The Vikings have reportedly maintained contact with Winfield’s representatives and a return to Minnesota is not totally out of the question.
