Redskins rumors: Antoine Winfield will visit Wednesday


The veteran free agent cornerback is making the rounds on the open market.

Free agent defensive back Antoine Winfield will visit the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, according to's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport reports that Winfield is still in discussions to re-join the Minnesota Vikings, who he has played for since 2004. Another one or two other teams are interested in Winfield, according to Rapoport.

The Vikings released Winfield two weeks ago. The news was a shock to Vikings fans at Daily Norseman.

Winfield, 35, wrapped up his 14th NFL season in 2012. He was a first round pick in the 1999 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He played in Buffalo through 2003 before joining the Vikings.

Winfield might be heading toward the end of his career, but he still proved to be durable in 2012. He played in all 16 games with the Vikings, recording 100 total tackles, three interceptions, 12 pass deflections and a half of a sack.

Winfield is a three-time Pro Bowler. He earned the honors in 2008, 2009 and 2010 with the Vikings.
