Antoine Winfield won’t be playing cornerback with the Seattle Seahawks for the 2013/2014 football season.
Winfield won’t make it onto the field and will be among Seattle’s cuts on Saturday, as the team slims its roster down to 53 players by the 6 p.m. ET deadline.
Considered one of the NFL’s better run-stoppers, it has been reported that Seattle might attempt to shop Winfield before releasing him. A team interested in padding their roster with the 36-year-old former pro bowler might listen, but Winfield is primarily a nickel-type at this stage in his career.
The release of Winfield suggests that the Seahawks are committed to Jeremy Lane and Walter Thurmond lll in the cornerback position.
