Bengals re-sign cornerback Newman
The Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed cornerback Terence Newman
to a two-year contract.
Newman will enter his 11th NFL season and second with the
Bengals. He played his first nine seasons with Dallas after being
drafted in the first round in 2003.
Last season, Newman led the Bengals in passes defensed with 14
and had two interceptions to raise his career total to 34.
Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer says Newman is ”the kind of
guy we want back as we work to keep our defense together.”
Cincinnati also has re-signed ends Robert Geathers, Michael
Johnson and Wallace Gilberry, cornerback Adam Jones and linebacker
Rey Maualuga from last year’s defense.
