The Seahawks are close to signing veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports, and adding him to an already dangerous secondary including CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner.

However, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Minnesota Vikings — who released Winfield in March before the last year of his five-year contract — are also interested in re-signing him on the cheap, and that Winfield will need to choose.

Winfield, 35, is a three-time Pro Bowler who has spent the last nine seasons of his 14-year NFL career with the Vikings. In Minnesota last year, in his 13th-straight season as a starter, he had three interceptions and 100 total tackles, including half a sack and one fumble recovery.

Buffalo’s first-round pick in the 1999 draft, Winfield has 27 career interceptions, 7.5 sacks and 1,052 total tackles as primarily a left cornerback. He was named to the Pro Bowl three-straight years from 2008 through 2010, including when the Vikings played in the 2009 NFC Championship Game. (Minnesota lost 31-28 to New Orleans in overtime.)
