I saw this posted earlier today (technically yesterday). It's a highlight video from his age 35 season. There had been other Winfield highlights out there but this is the only one that captures his most recent season. He's not quite as insanely explosive in this version, but he's still a hell of a football player, in my opinion.

Thanks. Nice post. Although I prefer natural game audio to the heavy music that highlight videos seem to always have. But, oh well...

He was pretty beastly against the Redskins. No wonder they pursued him so hard.

See the hit he lays on Golden Tate at 5:04. That's prime LOB material right there.

No introduction needed in the locker room for those two.

He's so light on his feet, like a dancer. Then he breaks down and makes these perfect form tackles. Our young guys are going to learn so much from him, how to study, how to break down a play as it is happening, and most importantly, how to properly tackle so that you get the guy down but you don't beat your body up in the process. They better pay attention, because if they are lucky, they will have a long career like Antoine has.

Saw it earlier. He sheds blocks so effortlessly and attacks runners like no other. I'm excited to see what he can do. His instincts seem to be off the charts

OK, so with the Legion of Boom cemented in, is Winfield just playing the Nickle spot and perhaps other situational formations then?

Kinda looks like he could play OLB too.

Or maybe part of Pete and John's thought process is not just making our team better, but removing good players from other NFC contenders?

Just sayin...

Still impressive at 35. Not a particularly big man, but he sure plays big. Even if we only get a year's rental on a guy like that, it will be a huge help.

He slips by blockers so effortlessly. And he wraps people up! Great tackler. I love the pickup.

I love that we got a new toy for Dan Quinn to use to blow up the opposition. In fact he has so many new ones that he may get tired trying to figure it all out.

Winfield will really help us, a great signing.

I wonder if there are plans to use the Bandit defense more this season. Seems like Mr. Winfield would be fantastic in it.

Go to your drop down menu in the upper right and select "view as desktop site (square checkbox)" then YouTube will appear as normal. (if you're using a smart phone, that is).

The dude just has a nose for the football. I loved the highlights against the whiners and cardinals in particular. He may not be a probowler this coming year but can see him making a huge impact against the run and really excited to see how he sniffs out the "dump offs" that seem to hurt us at times last season. So stoked!

I like the idea of short term free agent deals.

You fill your roster with very good players and let them compete for the long term extensions. The cream of the crop will get paid. This is just an extension of what Pete preaches.

It is a good defense mechanism against over paying players. Give those free agents a year to show how good they are. If they are a great fit, you extend. If not, they move on and you bring in the next batch.

I like that he'll lay wood when he can.

If Trufant's back and general health hadn't taken hits, his tackling is almost as good as Winfield's.

Winfield isn't invincible but if he stays healthy buys the Seahawks time to find a long-term 3rd corner (with long-term being 3-4 years since anything over that doesn't seem realistic).

Winfield is going to be a nice addition to the legion of boom, I don't see him having any trouble fitting in.

I agree Trufant is a sure tackler but the slot is not his normal position it was one he was still learning. Winfield is I believe, an even better tackler and playing the position he has played the bulk of his career. I think Winfield is an small upgrade at everything Tru did well but a huge upgrade in the area of instincts and that makes him much more versatile and dangerous.

Love Tru but there is no shame in being replaced by a guy of Winfields caliber.

In particular, two things stood out.
1. He controlled a zone against Detroit that we had trouble controlling with Trufant.
2. He laid wood on Alfred Morris. That is no easy task.

So I noticed that Winfield has worn #26 his entire career, first with the Bills, and then with the Vikings.

If #26 in Seattle was held by a practice squad guy, I imagine he could get it here, too... but I don't see Mike Rob giving up his number.

What number does Winfield get? 27, since it's one better than 26? 23, since Winfield is essentially replacing Tru and was drafted #23 overall back in 1999?

What say you all?

21. It's available. 27 is Guy.

And no need to pick the number of the player that you're expected to replace. A bit of a respect issue to me.

Great for scramblers and outside runs. Winfield looks like he lives for that stuff. Screens are gonna be tough for teams with him and KJ out there. I single out KJ because he's always in the backfield on screens.

He should also have a big impact on scrambling QB's like Cam, RGIII and Kaep. Offences will have to factor him into their game plan and with a decent pass rush , Wagner and our secondary, that doesn't leave alot of room for error.
