Vikings Re-Sign Terence Newman

It will be Newman's 16th season and fourth overall with the Vikings.

The Vikings announced Monday that they have re-signed 39-year-old cornerback Terence Newman. I am just going to go out and do the same things I've always done. Minnesota now has three first-round corners in their rotation (Waynes, Rhodes, Hughes), while Alexander was a second-rounder. The 2003 first-round pick will be the seventh-oldest player in the National Football League next season and the second-oldest positional player, behind only Tom Brady, who turns 41 in August.

He also notched his first career sack.

Newman totaled 25 tackles, one interception and five pass deflections in 2017, when he played in all 16 games and made seven starts. He had a career-high three interceptions in 2016.

So, we'll have to wait and see how Hughes will fit into the defense but considering the fact that Terrance Newman will eventually retire/die of natural causes on the field, it's great to know that the Vikings have (potentially elite) depth in their defensive backfield.

Minnesota had a big decision to make after the Vikings were bounced from the playoffs, though. The only other players older than Newman are all kickers or punters, including Adam Vinatieri (45), Phil Dawson (43), Matt Bryant (43 on May 29), Shane Lechler (42 on August 7) and Sebastian Janikowski (40).
