TAMPA — Antoine Winfield Jr.’s triple-crowning moment ― a sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery ― in last week’s 20-17 win over the Vikings got the attention of arguably the greatest pass-rushing defensive back in football.

“I texted him after the game and said, ‘Dude, go ahead and be the next 20/20 guy,” Ronde Barber said, “because nobody blitzes the quarterback from the safety position like he does.”

Barber, a former Bucs cornerback who was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August, was a 28-sack, 47-interception guy who set the standard. Already, Winfield’s 10 career sacks are the most by a safety in team history and more than any other NFL defensive back over the past four seasons.

they could have drafted winfield -- not franchise tagged harris -- and then signed a CB
Good thing for Winfield that the Vikings did not draft him. He would have never won a Super Bowl.

Winfield with a nice punchout and recovery deep in Saints territory.
