At a time when the Redskins and cornerback Antoine Winfield reportedly have “high mutual interest,” the Vikings remain interested in a reunion.
Minnesota cut Winfield last month, avoiding his way-above-market $7.25 million base salary. Coach Leslie Frazier has said that he wants the team to bring back the hard-nosed tackler whom the Vikings signed as a free agent in 2004.
The Vikings, we’re told, are actively trying to re-sign Winfield. And the Vikings have more to work with; they have $4.4 million in cap space while the Redskins have only $669,000.
