Report: Vikings Release CB Antoine Winfield

Tom Pelissero reports that the Minnesota Vikings have released CB Antoine Winfield.

Pelissero adds that sources have informed him that the Vikings asked Winfield to take a pay cut, , but he apparently refused.

“Winfield is a valuable contributor, an excellent leader, said a Vikings coach,” per Ian Rapoport. “Someone will be lucky to have him.”

Winfield, 35, had a $7.25 million base salary coming his way next season. He tallied 101 tackles, 12 passes defensed, and 3 interceptions last season.

It will be interesting to see how much interest there is in him given that he has still played very well in recent years.
