Antoine Winfield’s short tenure in Seattle apparently will come to a surprising conclusion. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that the 36-year-old cornerback intends to retire.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll confirmed the report via Twitter.

So the youth movement for the Seahawks continues. Walter Thurmond played so well during the preseason that he forced the team to make a decision, because he’s too good to leave on the sideline.

Also, young guys like Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell had to give Pete Carroll confidence that if Thurmond suffered yet another injury, the team had enough quality depth that could come in and play at a high level.

  1. Hope SF doesn’t talk AW outta retiring…

    Jim Harbaugh on line one, Mr. Winfield. Says that he wants to talk to you about the benefits to your pension should you decide to play one more season.

  3. Mr Williams, if a player plays preseason games but gets cut before regular season, is he considered a retired player who played for the team that he only played preseason with? If AW made it to the HoF, would SEA be one of the teams that would be included in his career?

  4. Dukeshire says:

    As much as Robinson’s release surprised me, this is not at all unexpected. After watching Thurmond and Maxwell this preseason, there simply wasn’t room for Winfield.

  5. Seattle is not the place to go to enjoy an easy last year of your career. #alwayscompete

  6. Any chance we will have the youngest roster in 2013?

  7. thursday says:

    Gosh they are taking forever to announce the final roster

  8. Mr Williams, how is M.Bennett’s toe?

  9. Imagine that – WTIII outplayed a good player!
