HoosierCat Posted March 5, 2004 Report Share Posted March 5, 2004 Local papers say Winfield backed out of his deal with the Jet (something like $30 million, including a $10 million signing bonus and $18 million total over the 1st 3 years) because basically the entire coaching staff and team of the Minnesota Vikings called all night long begging him to come up to Minny and let them shower him with cash. Jay-zus Kay-rist! Forget a FA CB this year, we're taking Hall or Gamble or Poole or someone in the first. Looks like Winfield will get something on the order of $6 million a year, and the Jets are now targeting Plummer, per reports here. Which means even elderly CBs like Vincent and (ugh) Taylor will want a good $4 million. Fuggedaboutit. Mikey will never pay (and the sad thing is he's probably right not to.)
