Winfield And Vikes Getting Closer (Geographically Anways)

Ashanti Webb has been texting a few Vikings reporters to let them know that he’s on his way to the Twin Cities today.  While no more details than that were given, it is believed that he will be having a face-to-face meeting with Vikings officials in regards to the contract status of Antoine Winfield.

If previous reports are true in regards to Brett Favre already having a contract agreed upon with the Vikings, then that would make the Vikings more confortable with committing a certain amount of cap space to Winfield’s new contract.  Also, the Vikings probably would like to get Winfield’s contract in place before they announce Favre’s potentially expensive contract to the media, in an effort to not further annoy and/or slight Antoine Winfield.

An agreement with Winfield would lift a lot of burden from the Vikings’ front office, especially if combined with an agreement with Favre, Phil Loadholt, Percy Harvin, and Asher Allen.
