Vikes ink Winfield to an extension

As the Vikings wait for word as to whether one plus-30 player will be joining the team, they’re learned that another — and much younger — plus-30 player will be sticking around.

Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Vikings have signed cornerback Antoine Winfield to a four-year extension.

He is now under contract through 2013, which means that he’ll likely finish his career with the Vikings.

Unless the other corner they signed today, Asher Allen, becomes a star and thus Winfield becomes expendable.
