Vikings Re-Sign Terence Newman

Terence Newman, who signed a one-year contract with the Vikings on Monday, says 2018 will be his final season.

But after 221 games and two Pro Bowls, Newman, who will turn 40 five days before the season-opener on September 9, isn't seeking a sentimental final season.

Newman noted during training camp last season that he'd pondered retirement the last several offseasons, but when it's time, he doesn't want to make it a big deal. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2003 draft, Newman will be one of the few cornerbacks in league history to play into his 40s.

We will be part of a conference call with Newman on Tuesday, May 1st, so stay tuned to purplePTSD.com and VikingsTerritory.com for more information on everything off-season! 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). "Super Bowls, that's what is important to me", he said.

"I've got a lot of options, so that's good", Newman said.

Newman's decision to stick around for another year most likely has to do with the fact that he's completely comfortable playing under Vikings coach Mike Zimmer. I understand when it's time for me, and it's time for me.

"I'm in the sunset when I go".

"I don't look back", Newman said. I am just going to go out and do the same things I've always done. "I just will have to get to that point". "We had a good team previous year, and the things they did in the draft and free agency, obviously on paper, we got better". He was the first cornerback taken that year.
