No way to tell if this is a possibility but he would be a solid replacement for Asante in case things don't work out. BB has always been high on this kid. Rumor: http://patriots.scout.com/?refid=1 http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/players Scouting info from ESPN: "Antoine Winfield. CB Born: June 24, 1977 5'9" 180 lbs. Experience: 8 years Winfield is smooth, strong and nasty. He is a playmaker and a game-changer. He is one of the league's most physical cornerbacks--and arguably one of the most aggressive corners ever. He plays much bigger than his size suggests. He takes excellent angles, gets tremendous jumps off the ball and always seems to be in the right position. He is an excellent open-field tackler who breaks down and wraps up. He has no weakness as a run defender. He plays with discipline and almost always is in control, despite his rare aggressiveness. He has excellent feet and hips, and he is very fluid in turn-and-run situations. He has an excellent short-area burst and can explode out of his turns. He plays with some swagger and isn't afraid to challenge receivers."
