Vikings Re-Sign Veteran Cornerback Terence Newman

The Vikings re-signed veteran cornerback Terence Newman for 2019 according to the team’s official website.

The team had had ongoing talks with Newman about returning for his age-40 season this spring but it seemed possible they would change their minds after using their first round draft pick on UCF cornerback Mike Hughes Thursday night.

That said, the Vikings have long valued Newman’s veteran leadership both on and off the field and he is a great role model for their young secondary. Newman is also still playing at a high level despite being in the NFL since 2003, as he appeared in all 16 games last season playing 559 snaps and graded out as one of the better slot corners in the league.

Newman’s snap count will likely be reduced this season given the impressive cornerback trio of Hughes, Xavier Rhodes, and Trae Waynes. Our guess is he will still play an impactful role on a team fighting to win a Super Bowl ring.

    I’m glad we have him back, it was kind of depressing when we got rid of him. He is one to retire as Robinson did with the vikings. I love this team right now more practice together makes a tough team. SKOL!!!

    It’s hard to believe you can take a playoff caliber almost Super Bowl caliber team and sign a 40 year old slower defensive player and expect him to be a integral part of the team to win. Your focus should be drafting players or trading for players that can help you win games.

    As a long time vikings supporter since 1974 this smacks me in the face of favoritism and another reason why The Vikings will be another 500 team this year and for the foreseeable future.

    Leadership (whether in lockerroom or field) and experience can speak volumes.

    Newman more than proved last year he is still a very competitive, reliable corner . I’m glad he is back and I believe he will help this team take the next step forward hopefully to win our 1st Super Bowl !!!
