    Vikings' Terence Newman: Probable for Sunday

    Newman (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Newman, who sustained a concussion in last Sunday's game against the Rams, was able to practice fully Friday and therefore should be available against Oakland this week. The 37-year-old has been starting at corner opposite Xavier Rhodes and could be in line for some IDP consideration with the Raiders likely to throw the ball around often to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.

    Vikings will consider starting Trae Waynes with Xavier Rhodes

    When the Vikings selected Trae Waynes in the first round of the draft on Thursday, it was the second time in three years they've used a first-round pick on a corner. The Vikings selected Xavier Rhodes in 2013, and it's only natural to consider pairing the two DBs. "To get two young corners like that and you watch Chicago take the receiver from West Virginia, knowing the receivers that we face in Green Bay and knowing the receivers we face in Detroit," GM Rick Spielman said, per Vikings.com. "To have to young corners that I know this staff has done a tremendous job of helping our young guys. To get another young player on that side of the ball, especially a player at a position that is in Coach Zimmer's wheelhouse. We are going to have to play some good defense and we were able to really improve last year, and I think adding a player like a Trae Waynes will definitely upgrade our defense." That doesn't mean Waynes is guaranteed a starting spot. " I know we signed Terence Newman, and we have Captain Munnerlyn. We have Josh Robinson," Spielman said. "We have a lot of depth at corner right now. Corners take some time to develop, he is not going to be pushed into starting right away, that will be determined as we go through this offseason program, as we go through training camp, how quickly he comes along, but we also have the luxury with the depth that we have at the cornerback position and if he is ready, the coaches will determine when he is ready." Coach Mike Zimmer was more aggressive. "I anticipate everybody to compete for a starting job," he said.

    Vikings CB Terence Newman has familiarity with Mike Zimmer

    Vikings cornerback Terence Newman won't have a steep learning curve now that he's with his new team. Newman played under Vikings coach Mike Zimmer when he was the defensive coordinator with the Cowboys. Drafted in 2003, Newman learned Zimmer's defense from his rookie season through 2006, before Zimmer left to take the same position with the Falcons. "I just know exactly what to expect from him as a coach, as well as everybody else in this locker room," Newman told the Vikings' website. "You play your best football under him." In his career, Newman has recorded 741 tackles and 37 interceptions. Entering his 13th NFL year, Newman has already impressed his teammates with voluntary workouts underway. "I met with him and he seemed like a great guy," cornerback Xavier Rhodes said. "Like he's going to come in and teach us what we need to know about the technique of the game and about the defense because he's been in it before, so he's going to help us out a lot. He's a big asset to this team and the defense."

    Terence Newman reunites with Mike Zimmer in Minnesota

    The Vikings announced Friday they signed cornerback Terence Newman, who played for coach Mike Zimmer in Dallas and Cincinnati. "That's the biggest thing. He can still play. He came in the league later. I think he was 25 when he came in," Zimmer said, per the team's official website. "He struggled a little bit in Dallas and then played great in Cincinnati. Last year, he didn't play quite as good, so seemingly with me, we get things fixed a little bit. I really respect him, and I think he really respects me." Although terms of the deal were not officially released, NFL.com reported earlier this week the veteran cornerback's deal is a one-year, $2.5 million contract.
