Cincinnati Bengals re-sign cornerback Terence Newman
The Cincinnati Bengals re-signed cornerback Terence Newman to a two-year, $5 million contract, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports. Newman recorded 52 tackles and two interceptions in his first year as a Bengal. Newman had spent the previous nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys before being cut by the team in 2012.
Newman has amassed 542 tackles, 34 interceptions and eight forced fumbles over his ten-year career. His 75 combined tackles with the Bengals last season was four shy of tying a career high.
Newman took to Twitter to announce he was heading back to Cincinnati despite being offered more money by the Oakland Raiders.
After much time and thought, I'm heading back to Cincy. And for those of you who think it was about money, the Raiders offered more.—
