The Vikings are in talks to re-sign free agent CB Terence Newman.
This isn't a surprise after Newman graded as one of the better corners in the league last year. Newman is limited to the slot at this stage but the Vikings want to bring him back. Despite entering his age-40 season, he should return in a sub-package role. Mar 30 - 6:32 PM

Free agent CB Terence Newman plans to return for a 16th season.

The 39-year-old wants one more shot at a Super Bowl. Newman is coming off another productive year in Minnesota, earning PFF's No. 26 grade out of 120 qualifiers at cornerback. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Vikings brought the veteran slot corner back on a cheap, one-year deal.
Feb 1 - 10:50 AM

Vikings CB Terence Newman (foot) is questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Saints.

The 39-year-old was limited at Friday's practice but should be ready for Sunday's 4:40 PM ET start. Newman will be tasked with containing 6'6" slot receiver Brandon Coleman.
Jan 12 - 1:31 PM

Terence Newman is working as the Vikings' slot cornerback at spring practices.

He'll face competition from second-year CB Mackenzie Alexander, but Newman is the favorite to replace Captain Munnerlyn. Although Newman turns 39 in September, he earned Pro Football Focus' No. 8 cornerback grade among 119 qualifiers last season. Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes will start on the outside.

Vikings CB Terence Newman "can't say" if 2017 will be his final season.

Newman is entering his 15th NFL season and his third with Minnesota. "When I do sail off, probably nobody will know it," said Newman when asked about retirement. "I won’t say anything to anybody. I’ll just be done." Despite his age, Newman was still highly productive last year, earning PFF's No. 8 corner grade out of 119 qualifiers. The two-time Pro Bowler turns 39 in September.
Fri, Jun 9, 2017 04:17:00 PM

Vikings re-signed CB Terence Newman to a one-year, $3.25 million contract.

Newman, Carson Palmer, Jason Witten, Terrell Suggs, and Anquan Boldin are the only five players left in the league from the 2003 draft. Newman turns 39 later this year but is still playing at a high level thanks to, what he says, is red wine. Newman was PFF's No. 9 cover corner out of 120 qualifiers last season. The Vikings are hoping inconsistent 2015 first-round pick Trae Waynes will win their left corner position, but Newman has outplayed Waynes the past two years.
Wed, Mar 15, 2017 12:32:00 PM

Free agent CB Terence Newman said he plans to play in 2017.

As of earlier this month, Newman had yet to announce if he wanted to continue his career. Newman, 38, was the second-oldest defensive player last season, behind James Harrison. Both continue to play at an extremely high level, with Newman grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 9 cover corner out of 120 qualifiers. He appeared in 15 games and should be able to find a home.
Tue, Mar 14, 2017 10:28:00 PM

Free agent Terence Newman has yet to officially announce if he will play in 2017.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer believes Newman wants to return for a 15th season, but added "I don’t think we’ve totally decided on anything." Newman is the second-oldest defensive player in football behind James Harrison, but remained effective in 2017. He turns 39 in September.
Thu, Mar 2, 2017 02:12:00 PM

Vikings CB Terence Newman has not decided if he will return for 2017.

The second-oldest defender in the league behind Steelers OLB James Harrison, Newman is about to finish his 14th season in the NFL. Newman thinks his body could handle the rigors of an NFL season at 39, but he is not sure the "situation" will be right for him to return. Newman played this season on a one-year, $2.5-million deal.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 12:39:00 PM

Vikings CB Terence Newman (neck) is doubtful for Week 12 against the Lions.

He's not going to play. Slot CB Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) is questionable. Newman's loss is an upgrade for Marvin Jones and Golden Tate's matchups on the outside, though RCB Xavier Rhodes could shadow Jones.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 01:14:00 PM

Vikings re-signed CB Terence Newman to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Neither side seemed to have any interest in splitting up. Going on 38, Newman is one of the league's oldest players, but also remained one of its most effective corners in 2015. With Xavier Rhodes, Captain Munnerlyn and Trae Waynes all still in the fold, Newman probably won't play the 981 snaps he received last season, but he'll remain a key cog for Mike Zimmer's on-the-rise defense.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 01:56:00 PM

The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson reports the Vikings and free agent CB Terence Newman continue to discuss a new deal.

Newman wants to re-sign with Minnesota, and it sounds like the Vikings want him back. This should get done. Newman will be 38 when the season begins, but he showed no signs of slowing down last season. He will likely have to cede at least part of his role to sophomore Trae Waynes if he returns.
Fri, Mar 11, 2016 05:32:00 PM

Free agent CB Terence Newman wants to re-sign with the Vikings.

Newman is entering his age-38 season, but plans to continue his career. The Vikings still view him as a corner, but might not need him with Trae Waynes a second-year leap candidate. Newman shouldn’t cost more than the $2.5M he signed for last offseason.
Sat, Mar 5, 2016 06:19:00 PM

Vikings GM Rick Spielman says he's had contract talks with free agent CB Terence Newman.

"I think Terence still wants to play," Spielman said. "The process will continue as we get up to the negotiation period. We have plenty of time between now and then." Spielman also said the team isn't considering moving Newman to safety. Going on 38, Newman has proven inseparable from coach Mike Zimmer. It would be a major surprise were he not back with the Vikings in 2016.

The Vikings are expected to be open to the idea of re-signing impending free agent CB Terence Newman.

The 37-year-old will only require a one-year contract like he did last offseason. Despite his advanced age, Newman continues to play at a high level and has said he'll only play for coach Mike Zimmer after being with him in Dallas, Cincinnati, and now Minnesota. Newman started all 17 games this past season and was PFF's No. 34 corner. He's also open to playing safety.
