In the NFL, 40-year-old cornerbacks are kind of like unicorns 鈥?they’re not supposed Preston Brown Jersey to exist. But Terence Newman is no ordinary cornerback.
The Vikings announced Monday that Newman has re-signed and will return for his 16th NFL season in 2018. Newman will tuns 40 just before the season starts 鈥?his birthday is Sept. 4 鈥?and he will be the oldest defensive player in the league.

Newman, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, ranks second among active players with 42 career interceptions. These days, he’s also prized for his leadership and experience. The veteran should be a good mentor for new Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes, the team’s first-round pick out of UCF (No. 30 overall) in the recent draft.
Newman himself was once a first-round pick, the Cowboys’ No. 5 overall pick in 2003. He later played three seasons with the Bengals before heading north to Minnesota.
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.
I’m in the sunset when I go. 鈥?It’s not going to be a big spectacle, Newman said (via Scout.com). It’s just going to be I’m gone. I don’t need any pats on the back. When I’m done, I’m done.
In three seasons with the Vikings, Newman has started 33 of the 47 games in which he’s appeared. In 2017, he had 25 tackles, one interception and five passes defensed.
Broncos GM John Elway’s golf game, even as a 1.4 handicap, couldn’t compete with The Broadmoor’s East Course on Monday in Colorado Springs.

He played respectably en route to a 10-over-par 80 in a U.S. Senior Open qualifier, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported, but not good enough to make the field for the USGA event next month.
For a 58-year-old who didn’t play for about two monthsleading into the NFL Draft, Elway held his own, the Gazette noted, shooting matching 40s on the front and back on a day when only only five golfers broke 77. The players who earned the two qualifying spots up for grabs shot 69 and 72.
The day before the anthem policy was enacted, and two days before Trump hinted at deporting players who didn’t comply, coach Doug Pederson steered clear of imposing anything on the players about making the trip: We’re working through a ton of things, but at the same time, we understand that it’s an individual decision.
