39 Years Young: Vikings, Newman Agree to Terms

Father Time’s undefeated record has been well-documented since, well, the beginning of time itself.

Every year another household name in sports is claimed either via planned retirement or playing through a painful final year. No individual has ever been able to stand the test of time, and betting on this changing at any point is more-or-less equivalent to tossing a wad of bills into an active volcano.

If there is one player that possesses both the physical tools and competitive drive necessary to challenge Father Time’s winning streak, however, it is two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman.

Following yet another outstanding individual season in 2016, the seemingly ageless defensive back decided he will return to the gridiron for at least one more season with the Minnesota Vikings.
