Terence Newman: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman has decided to retire after 15 NFL seasons, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Newman played for the Cowboys, Bengals and Vikings over the course of his career. In 16 games with Minnesota in 2017 he recorded 35 tackles and five passes defensed, including an interception. He turns 40 on Tuesday and may have called it a career because of his age or because he was likely to be relegated to a depth role with the Vikings in 2018.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Returns to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman agreed to a contract to return to Minnesota for 2018, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Newman played in every game for the Vikings last season, logging 560 defensive reps in the process as he split time with Mackensie Alexander in the nickel cornerback role. However, Newman may have a reduced role at age 40 and with the Vikings taking Mike Hughes with the 30th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Would like to play another season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman would like to play another season, Ben Goessling of The Star Tribune reports. "I want to have an opportunity to play for a Super Bowl Championship," Newman said Thursday. "I want to get over that hurdle. That was my first NFC championship I've played in, in 15 years. I've never made it past the divisional round. I've never been to a championship game. I want to be able to have an opportunity to win a ring. It's that simple."

Newman will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason so he has the opportunity to go where he pleases, in his case wherever he feels he has the best chance to win a ring. According to the veteran cornerback, who will be 40 next season, money is not the objective of his next deal. Newman played in every game for the Vikings last season, logging 560 defensive reps in the process, so there is clearly something left in the tank for the oldest cornerback in the league.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Records 35 tackles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman recorded 35 combined tackles and one interception in 2017.

Newman still managed to be a factor in his incredible 15th season, spending most of his playing time defending the slot. The 39-year-old veteran was able to play in all 16 regular season games as well as both of the Vikings' postseason contests, suggesting that he still has fuel in the tank. Newman came into the season on a one-year deal, so he would need to re-sign or test free agency in order to play next year.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Newman was limited in practice throughout the week as he dealt with a minor foot injury, but the 39-year-old cornerback will be able to play in the divisional round. Expect Mackensie Alexander to provide depth at the nickel spot as well.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Questionable to play Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Zimmer said Newman (foot) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and will be listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC divisional-round game against the Saints, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.

Newman was also a limited participant in Wednesday's practice before entirely sitting out Thursday's session. If he isn't able to play Sunday, Mackensie Alexander would presumably gobble up the majority of snaps as the primary nickel cornerback.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Grabs first INT of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman recorded one solo tackle, two pass breakups and one interception Sunday against the Bengals.

This was Newman's first interception since Week 3 of the 2016 season. The veteran corner doesn't often play full workloads, as he logged just 36 of 55 possible defensive snaps Sunday. Newman has just two tackles in his last four games, so although this was a nice showing, don't expect a replication in Week 16 against the Packers.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Begins season as slot corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman played 41 snaps and worked as the slot corner ahead of Mackensie Alexander in Monday's win over the Saints, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He had four total tackles.

It looks like Newman will get more playing time as a result. However, we'd expect the Vikings to be judicious with the 39-year old's playing time later in the season.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Likely to move to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman appears set to be used as a backup or third-cornerback role with Trae Waynes moving into the starting lineup opposite Xavier Rhodes, ESPN reports.

Newman could battle Mackensie Alexander for the slot cornerback role, but most of the talk appears to be that Newman will move to a reserve role. However, neither Alexander nor Waynes are established enough as starters that Newman couldn't take over a larger role if either struggle.

March 15, 2017 01:24 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Signs contract with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman signed a one-year contract to remain with Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Newman was a free agent but will return to the Vikings. Although 38 last season, he graded well in coverage. However, he could have a reduced role at age 39 as 2015 first-round draft pick Trae Waynes will compete for the starting job. Or Newman could shift to covering the slot with Captain Munnerlyn leaving to sign with the Panthers.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (neck) is active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Newman was inactive last week but was able to practice in full on Tuesday and wasn't expected to be held out Thursday. It's unclear if he'll be limited at all, in which case Trae Waynes would likely see some extra snaps.

November 29, 2016 11:14 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Full participant in Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (neck) was a full participant in practice Tuesday.

The veteran's full participation should clear him of any injury status heading into Thursday's matchup with the Cowboys. Look for the veteran cornerback to resume his role as starter but he could see his reps monitored, in which case Trae Waynes could see increased action.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (neck) is listed as inactive Thursday in Detroit.

With merely three days to recuperate following Sunday's win against the Cardinals, the 38-year-old will rest up and turn his focus on the final five games of the regular season.

November 18, 2016 05:12 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Taken off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (illness) was not listed on the Vikings' final injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Newman was out sick Wednesday, but was back to full-go in Friday's practice.

September 12, 2016 02:57 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Gets seven tackles in season opening win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman started at cornerback and had seven tackles in Sunday's win over Tennessee.

There was some talk in the preseason that Newman could lose his starting job to Trae Waynes. However, Xavier Rhodes' potentially serious knee injury could ensure Waynes and Newman will remain the starters for awhile.

September 2, 2016 01:08 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Plays in two preseason contests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman finished the preseason with five tackles and two passes defensed while playing in two of the four games.

Newman sat out the Vikings' first preseason game with an undisclosed injury but was able to start the second and third games. His absence from the final tilt was merely due to rest as Minnesota looked to keep their starters healthy for their Week 1 matchup with Tennessee.

Vikings' Terence Newman: Dealing with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman will not travel with the team for Friday's preseason matchup with the Bengals due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

Newman missed practice both Monday and Tuesday, although the specifics of the injury have yet to be released. It isn't expected to be anything serious, though, so the Vikings are likely just being cautious with their 37-year-old veteran. Newman will remain in Minnesota for rest and recovery, but we should see his status updated by the start of next week. Look for Trae Waynes to take the starters' reps during Friday's preseason outing versus the Bengals.

March 15, 2016 02:01 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal to remain with the Vikings, 1500 ESPN's Tom Pelissero reports.

Newman, who turns 38 in September, will rejoin the Vikings for a second season manning left cornerback after logging 62 tackles and three picks in 16 starts for the team in 2015.

December 11, 2015 11:56 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Moved to safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman was moved to safety in Thursday's loss to Arizona and had one tackle and also defended one pass.

Newman moved to safety with rookie Trae Waynes getting the start at cornerback in Newman's usual spot. Newman will likely return to cornerback when Harrison Smith or Andrew Sendejo return from injury.

November 16, 2015 06:07 PM
Vikings' Terence Newman: Two interceptions in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman had two interceptions and four tackles in Sunday's win at Oakland.

Newman is the third leading active player with 39 interceptions. His per-play tackle totals are down slightly from last season, but he continues to get plenty of snaps as a starting cornerback at age 37.
