The move saves the Vikings $7.25 million in cap space.

Winfield is aging but still was one of the best run stopping CBs in the league last season.

Was his contract that toxic? Dude was pretty damn good last year.

Uhh What?! It seemed like he wanted to come back for one last run. Wonder what prompted. Paint me unhappy as hell as of right now.

I thought Winfield had a great year last year? What was his contract like?

Wouldn't mind the Dolphins taking a look at all... we need corner help.

One of the most complete CB in the NFL when healthy. Not sure if that has played a factor in the decesion as well along with his age?

He did. I just don't understand this move right now. He's a great pick up for whoever gets him.

Vikings don't seem blinded by a win now mentality, saving money to be better down the road.

Damn, I know he is old and we have started a youth movement. But I would love to see him as a Charger on a short-term deal.
