ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the Seahawks are “closing in on a deal” with free agent CB Antoine Winfield.
Ian Rapoport reports that although there’s “mutual interest” between the two sides, they’re currently “just talking.”
Winfield visited with Seattle on Monday, but the Vikings are reportedly making a strong push to re-sign him as well.
Washington is also in the picture, but both the Vikings and Seahawks are in much better shape financially to offer him a more competitive deal.
Many believe the Seahawks already have the most talented roster in the league following the recent additions of Percy Harvin, Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett. That’s not to mention the fact that they already have two of the best cornerbacks in the league in Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner.
We’ll have more as the news becomes available.
We have Winfield listed as the No. 5 player in our recently updated Best Available Free Agents list.
