Antoine Winfield (born June 24, 1977) is an American football cornerback in the NFL. He played college football at The Ohio State University, winning the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 1998. Winfield was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft. Since 2004, he has played for the Minnesota Vikings. He has 14 interceptions while with the Vikings, along with three touchdowns. One of his most memorable plays of his career was when he returned a blocked field goal for 59 yard touchdown against New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.

Winfield attended Garfield High School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. He is regarded as one of the most physical corners in the league, known for his bone-jarring hits, and was ranked by Peter King of Sports Illustrated as the 31st best player in the NFL. He made his first Pro Bowl in 2008.

Winfield is widely regarded as one of the most aggressive tacklers in the NFL.
