Winfield Still Absent
With the contract talks having stalled with the Vikings and Pro Bowl Cornerback Antonio Winfield. Winfield is entering his final year of his contract. Winfield has stated numerous times "I want to finish my career a Viking."
Winfield has been a no show for this weeks' OTAs, attendance is strongly encouraged.I do not blame his for being a little miffed over the Vikes and the contract talks. The Vikes a considering in sign a player WAY PAST his prime.
Winfield is 32 and going to be earning over 6 million this season. He is still the bestcorner the Vikes have on the roster.Why not try to get an extension to his existing contract. He knows that he does not have much time let to play football.
