Vikings re-sign 39-year-old CB Terence Newman

The Vikings secured Trae Waynes for the 2019 season

Newman, who will be 40 in September, will play his 16th National Football League season in 2018 and provides valuable locker room leadership and is also still productive on the field.

Zimmer and Newman have been linked throughout their careers, as Zimmer was Newman's defensive coordinator with the Cowboys from 2003 through 2006 before going on to coach him with the Bengals and Vikings as well.

The move was made Monday by the Vikings, who drafted Waynes with the 11th overall pick in the first round in 2015. He joined the Vikings in 2015. In 2017, the 39-year-old Newman was on the field for 555 snaps, which was the third-highest total among all Vikings corners.

Congratulations to Trae Waynes on signing his fifth-year option on his rookie deal and hopefully he and his Minnesota Vikings teammates can continue to strike fear into the hearts of opposing teams' offenses.




With Xavier Rhodes and Waynes the starters on the outside, Newman and Mackensie Alexander are the primary options to play the slot in the nickel defense.

The Vikings and Waynes will look to sign a new deal within the next year or so, but he's now situated under his current contract to be with the team through 2019.

Waynes has appeared in 46 career games with 25 starts, including starting all 16 regular-season games for the first time last season when he finished with 72 tackles. The team begins organized team activities on May 21.
