03:26 PM ET 04.03 | Free agent cornerback Antoine Winfield has drawn interest from a few teams, but he isn't expected to make a decision until at least next week, according to Dan Wiederer of the Star Tribune. The Vikings released Winfield earlier this offseason, but remain in the mix to re-sign him. In addition to Minnesota, the Washington Redskins have made a strong push to sign Winfield, with the Denver Broncos showing interest, as well. Even with multiple teams showing strong interest, Winfield may not receive the contract he's looking for. He is asking for a one-year deal worth as much as $5 million, according to Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500. With very little room to operate under the salary cap, neither the Vikings nor Redskins are likely to be able to afford his asking price. Winfield was set to earn $7.25 million with the Vikings next season before Minnesota released him in March. Minnesota attempted to re-work his contract before the release and has made a strong push to re-sign him after. members of the Vikings front office have been in daily contact with Winfield's representatives, according to Pelissero.
