Leslie Frazier Would 'Welcome' A Chance To Work With Antoine Winfield Again
Former Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield has decided to retire after 14 NFL seasons.
But Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier left the door open if Winfield changes his mind.
“You know, I have a ton of respect for Antoine as you know. He did a lot of good things for us here, had a great career here in Minnesota and really helped me look good at times with some of the plays he made. I have a deep affection for him,” Frazier said. “But if he wanted to play, I’d welcome the opportunity to work with Antoine again if that’s what he wanted to do.
“But if he’s retired, I wish him nothing but the best. He’s been a great player, a great person and he’s going to enjoy retirement. But he was a tremendous player for a long time in our league.”
Asked if he’s spoken to Winfield, Frazier said, “I haven’t spoken to him.
“I may give him a call today just to wish him well. But I haven’t spoken to him.”
Winfield was a salary cap casualty of the Vikings in the spring, and he signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks. But the Seahawks terminated his contract Saturday, and Winfield decided to retire.
