..cut by the Vikes and is behind the game a little. I know, he's 35, and is gonna cost 5 mil..

But I would try to get this guy for a one or two year contract, cut Grimes and draft a developmental CB ( like we did with Grimes) later in the draft.

thoughts?

You don't have to cut Grimes, he's an unrestricted free agent.

Winfield is a good player, but he's at the end of the line. The best you're hoping for really is one more good year as an effective starter.

At least with Grimes, you have teh potential that he can have 3 or 4 more years as an effective starter.

The Falcons should only pursue Winfield if they can't re-sign Grimes.
