Old Article on Earl Winfield

I was looking at the wikipedia entry for former Ticat receiver Earl Winfield and found that it wasn't particularly informative, but did have a link to a preserved Geocities page with an old Globe and Mail article from Stephen Brunt about Winfield. The article is interesting from a historical perspective, including the fact that Winfield earned around $100,000 way back then, but was looking at a substantial pay cut due to the usual periodic CFL hard times.

The Geocities page also helpfully has Winfield's career stats, which were what I was looking for anyways. His ninth season, 1995 was his best year with 92 receptions and 1496 yards and 13 scores, which is pretty impressive compared to the league leaders from last year.
