    There were a lot of FA's that left the Bills and got huge contracts that they never lived up to. As bad as management of this team has been over the last two decades, that was one area where they were generally very good: letting FA's walk rather than overpaying them.

    Winfield, however, was worth the money. They should have ponied up.

    That's why this article interested me.

    Because he or the Vikings accomplished what while he was there? Winfield was a lunch pale type, sure I respect his play but he wasn't elite to me the better CB at that time was Nate Clements who was a playmaker.

    I enjoyed them both and wish we had a way at the time to secure their services.
    We lost both CB's and that's what is inexcusable to me.
    Hell we lose every good CB it seems.

    What's your point? What did we accomplish with Clements instead of Winfield?

    My point is Winfield wasn't a difference making CB, so to lament his loss is lamenting for lamenting sake.

    Setting all of that aside for a bit, would you say Winfield Jr. should or deserves to be on our radar?
