Cornerback Antoine Winfield is set to join the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year contract, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. ESPN.com first reported Winfield reaching an agreement with the Seahawks. The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been officially announced.
Winfield joins one of the most talented defensive backfields in the NFL, likely as an extra cornerback to play in the slot. He is joining a secondary that features two All-Pros in cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas and past Pro Bowl selections Brandon Browner and Kam Chancellor.
Winfield's a three-time Pro Bowl selection and was voted All-Pro in 2008. He had been with the Vikings since 2004.
