The Washington Redskins are making a big push to land cornerback Antoine Winfield.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Winfield was wined and dined in Washington, D.C. at a table that included team owner Daniel Snyder, quarterback Robert Griffin III, coach Mike Shanahan and members of the defensive staff.
Winfield was released by the Minnesota Vikings earlier this month after declining a pay cut, though a return remains possible. Then again, the Redskins are in full-court press mode, and they desperately need a player of Winfield's caliber to fortify their ailing secondary.
Speaking of ailing, one hold-up in a potential deal with the Redskins was the health of Winfield's agent, Ashanti Webb, who has been under the weather. Webb is back up to speed, meaning Winfield might choose a home soon.
If the Redskins can find the salary-cap room, that home very well might be FedEx Field. Stay tuned.
