12:20 PM ET 04.13 | The Seattle Seahawks finished the 2012 season with the fewest points allowed in the NFL, but made a move to bolster that defense further on Friday by agreeing in principle to a one-year deal with former Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Known for his strong run defense and physical play, Winfield showed no signs of slowing in 2012 after a broken collarbone cut his season short in 2011. In 15 starts, Winfield finished the 2012 season with three interceptions and 100 tackles, but was released to clear up more than $7 million in salary cap space. The Seahawks have one of the most-promising, young cornerback duos in Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, meaning Winfield will likely step into a reserve role in Seattle. The Seahawks allowed just 15 passing touchdowns in 2012, the second-fewest in the league.
