According to FOX Sports, free agent CB Antoine Winfield has decided to stay retired.
There's been plenty of speculation that Winfield would come out of retirement to help the Seahawks through the suspensions in their secondary, but it's not happening. After sitting out all season, it's unlikely the 36-year-old would be able to give Seattle an upgrade anyway. Their defense remains dominant even without Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond III.

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, coach Pete Carroll admitted the Seahawks might re-sign free agent CB Antoine Winfield.

"He's knows his way around," Carroll said wryly. Winfield would be an excellent stopgap for a team missing Brandon Browner (groin) and Walter Thurmond III (suspension), but the price would have to be right for Winfield to end his "retirement." He's not going to chase a championship out of the goodness of his heart.

Sources tell FOX Sports that the Seahawks have contacted free agent CB Antoine Winfield.

It's a no-brainer move for the Seahawks. Brandon Browner (groin) is out indefinitely and Walter Thurmond has been suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Winfield, now 36 years old, spent training camp with the Seahawks but said he was retiring just as word broke that he was going to be released. The chance to go to the Super Bowl could entice the three-time Pro Bowler to lace up the cleats again.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports "retired" CB Antoine Winfield is working out in Houston and considering a return to "the right situation."

Winfield never filed his retirement papers after he announced his retirement. He spent the summer with the Seahawks, but Seattle was preparing to release the 36-year-old at final cuts before he hung up the cleats. The Vikings and Redskins hotly pursued Winfield along with Seattle, but those two teams are a combined 1-5. Those wouldn't seem to be ideal situations for Winfield. Contenders that could use an upgrade at slot corner are the Ravens and Texans.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier told reporters before Sunday's opener that he would "welcome" a chance to reunite with free agent CB Antoine Winfield.

Winfield hasn't officially retired and at least one team has "checked in" since he was cut by the Seahawks. The Vikings saved $7.25 million by releasing Winfield in the offseason, but he was an effective slot corner in Minnesota's defense last year and could be brought back if he's willing to return.

Former Bills and Vikings CB Antoine Winfield has decided to retire.

Despite grading out as ProFootballFocus' No. 1 corner in the entire league last year, Winfield was released by the Vikings in March. He then went to Seattle, but it was rumored that he was going to be among their final cuts. It's a quiet end to an excellent and underrated career. Winfield appeared in 191 games, picked off 27 passes, went to three Pro Bowls (2008, 2009, 2010) and was annually one of the NFL's toughest corners in run support.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Seahawks are preparing to release CB Antoine Winfield.

Per La Canfora, the Seahawks may dangle Winfield as trade bait on Saturday, but in all likelihood will end up severing ties. The Seahawks are a strict best-player-plays team -- that's Pete Carroll's mantra -- and they are excited about Walter Thurmond III as well as Jeremy Lane behind starters Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman. The Redskins and Vikings hotly pursued Winfield back in April. The Broncos were also rumored to have interest.

The website Pro Football Focus has credited Seahawks CB Antoine Winfield with zero touchdown passes allowed over the past three seasons.

Winfield is 36 years old and Father Time remains undefeated, but he's been an incredibly effective slot corner when healthy. Winfield has played in 37 games the past three years, and PFF has also considered him the NFL's premier run-support cornerback during that stretch. With Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman outside and Winfield inside, Seattle has a good chance to field the NFL's stoutest sub-package cornerback trio in 2013.

Antoine Winfield accepted $2 million less in guaranteed money to sign with the Seahawks.

The Vikings reportedly offered Winfield a fully guaranteed one-year, $3 million contract to return. He turned them down and accepted a $2 million deal from the Seahawks that contains just $1 million guaranteed. "They have an opportunity to do something that I dream about every night and that's win a championship," Winfield said. "...I don't have too much time left. This is Year 15 for me so I'm trying to get it this year."

The Seahawks plan to use Antoine Winfield as strictly a nickel back, giving him around 600 defensive snaps.

He played 1,100 in Minnesota last season. Winfield is plenty capable of starting games at left cornerback, but the Seahawks want him in the slot, wreaking havoc on inside receivers and ball carriers closer to the line of scrimmage. He's also a quality insurance policy should LCB Richard Sherman suffer injury.

Antoine Winfield's one-year contract with Seattle is worth $3 million with $1 million guaranteed.

Not that we should be surprised considering GM John Schneider's consistently savvy player acquisition, but it's quite the value pickup for the Seahawks. Winfield graded out in 2012 as Pro Football Focus' best cornerback in the league. (Richard Sherman was No. 2 and Brandon Browner was 22 among 113 qualifiers.) Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Broncos and Patriots dabbled in the Winfield bidding, in addition to Seattle, Washington, and Minnesota.

Seahawks agreed to terms with CB Antoine Winfield, formerly of the Vikings, on a one-year contract.

Winfield, 36 in June, picked the Seahawks over the Vikings and Redskins. His addition is a massive upgrade on injury-prone burn victim Marcus Trufant, who manned the slot for Seattle last season. Sandwiching Winfield between Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner gives Seattle arguably the top corner trio in the league. The Seahawks' roster has no holes outside of a partially questionable offensive line. They're shaping up as the early Super Bowl favorite.

Free agent CB Antoine Winfield is expected to pick between the Seahawks, Vikings, and Redskins this weekend.

The Seahawks and Vikings seem to be the front-runners with the Redskins in a distant third. It's going to be an emotional decision. The 35-year-old has strong ties to the community in Minnesota, but the Seahawks offer him a better chance to compete for a Super Bowl. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Winfield "stands to do well" financially with whichever team he picks.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent CB Antoine Winfield is deciding between the Seahawks and Vikings, and that the situation is "very fluid."

Rapoport expects Winfield to decide "soon." ESPN's Ed Werder reported earlier Wednesday that the Seahawks were "closing in" on Winfield, so they should be considered the favorite. The "very fluid" designation may just be an attempt on Winfield's part to wring a few extra dimes out of Seattle.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 07:40:00 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Seahawks are "closing in" on signing free agent CB Antoine Winfield.

It would mean the aggressive 'Hawks beat out the Vikings and Redskins for Winfield's services, who both have bigger needs at cornerback. Although he's going on 36, Winfield remains one of the league's best nickel corners. Winfield would be a big upgrade on Marcus Trufant, and make for one of the league's most imposing CB trios alongside Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner.
