"I'm hoping that we can figure out a way to get him back here," Frazier said, according to 1500ESPN.com. "So, I'm hoping that it's not goodbye yet."
The Vikings cut Winfield on Tuesday after the cornerback declined a pay cut. Winfield was within his rights, especially coming off a season in which he remained a premier run defender while not surrendering a single touchdown through the air.
The Vikings will have competition if they're serious about making a run to bring Winfield back. The 14-year veteran has "multiple visits" set up with other teams, according to 1500ESPN.com. Given the way the relationship with Minnesota initially ended, it wouldn't be a surprise if Winfield preferred a fresh start elsewhere.
"Him and I talked a few days ago, before I came up here, and I don't want the door to be shut," Frazier said. "So, we're going to still try to get something worked out -- if he's amicable to coming back."
If the Vikings don't bring back Winfield, they are looking at a serious depth problem in their secondary. Just another reason why the initial decision to drop Winfield seemed so odd.
