Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is holding out hope that veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield will return to the team. Winfield was arguably the team’s best defensive back in 2012, but his $7.25 million salary for 2013 was too much for the Vikings to carry. However, Frazier wants Winfield to return and isn’t shy about saying it. "We're all human," Frazier said, via Ben Goessling of Twincities.com. "We all like to know we're wanted. I've tried to make that clear to him. I'll let him know, 'If you've got any questions, you know how to reach me.' " "With or without Antoine, we would have to look at bringing some guys in, in this draft," Frazier said. "I don't know what direction he's leaning, but I'm hoping he'll come back and be a Viking," Frazier said. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
