The Bengals have agreed to a deal with cornerback Terence Newman, an unrestricted free agent from Dallas who struggled in pass coverage last season.

The 33-year-old cornerback was the fifth overall pick in 2003. He went to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009. He was targeted in coverage last season, and the Cowboys released him last month.

Newman is Cincinnati's latest addition to a secondary that was a strong point two years ago, when Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall formed one of the NFL's best cornerback tandems. Joseph left for Houston after the 2010 season, and Hall tore his left Achilles tendon in November.

The Bengals signed 32-year-old Nate Clements to replace Joseph last year. They've re-signed nickel cornerback Adam ''Pacman'' Jones this offseason and added cornerback Jason Allen.
