Multiple sources confirm the Minnesota Vikings have released veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield.

Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500 in the Twin Cities broke the news on Twitter, following up with a second tweet saying this:

Winfield was due $7.25 million this year, which loosens up money to pursue younger talent  both at wide receiver and cornerback; both positions where the Vikings need to build depth.

The 35 year old logged 9 seasons with the Vikings after serving in Buffalo for five years. The reliable force in the secondary offered 71 tackles, 3 interceptions, and half a sack last season.
