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.
