Minneapolis, MN – Reports are swirling around the NFL today as 32 teams are making their final cuts and trimming their rosters down to the required 53 men. One such report coming out of Seattle involves a former Minnesota Viking who may once again be available on the open market.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, former Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield will be released by the Seattle Seahawks later today. While the official announcement has yet to be made, this rumor has been floating out there for the past few weeks. Seattle is deep at the cornerback position and Winfield isn’t exactly a young spring chicken any more.

The option for Winfield, who was released by the Vikings on March 12th, to eye a reunion with the purple is a real possibility if Antoine wants to go out on his own terms. Minnesota secondary hasn’t exactly been filled with gang busters this preseason and Winfield is already familiar with the Vikings Tampa-Two scheme. However, it will take a pretty big swallow of pride for Winfield to return to the team that cut him out of the blue before free agency opened.

Winfield, 36 years old, is a 3-time Pro Bowler.
