Free agent cornerback Terence Newman has played cornerback in the NFL for 14 seasons. Yet somehow, the 38-year-old is still performing at a high level.
Newman spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons with the Vikings as the starting left cornerback opposite Xavier Rhodes. In 31 games, he collected four interceptions and 20 passes defensed. Pro Football Focus graded Newman as the ninth-best cornerback in the NFL in 2016 with a grade of 86.4.
He announced today on Sirius XM Radio that he will indeed play in the 2017 season.
FA CB Terence Newman: I'm planning on playing next season. Hope to get something done in next few days. I do have a deal that is imminent.
