The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Vikings coach Brad Childress is optimistic that a deal could get done with Pro Bowl CB Antoine Winfield, who is entering the final year of his contract.
- “It’s ongoing and we’d like to get him done,” Childress said. “With the uncertain future and the [collective bargaining agreement] the way it is, I’d like to have it done. It could be one year, it could be two, it could be three. But again, we have a real good dialogue with [agent] Ashanti Webb right now.”
