Winfield's joy

Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert
Make sure you check out this interview with Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield, a 10-year veteran who was named to his first Pro Bowl earlier Tuesday. Winfield is a pretty reserved guy, but his genuine excitement is obvious when reading his responses to questions from Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.

Winfield called Tuesday "one of the best days of my life" and revealed he hired a publicist earlier this season to help him get to the Pro Bowl.

Here's another highlight:

"I've been in this league a long time and finally to get in is an unbelievable feeling. I've worked so hard, finally to get there, it's a relief. I'm just so overjoyed right now."
