Defensive back Terence Newman is entering his 15th season in the NFL for the 2017-18 season, and after he confirmed to SiriusXm NFL Radio that he would in fact be returning for his 15th season, the only question was, would he return to the purple and gold of the Minnesota Vikings or would he play somewhere else?
Newman, in speaking with SiriusXM, said that he was not only going to play next season but noted that he had a deal was "imminent." Which team that deal was with, Newman did not say, but it could very well be the Vikings.
Newman has spent the last two seasons in Minnesota and has a very close relationship with Head Coach Mike Zimmer as the two have also spent time together when they were both in Cincinnati.
The 38-year old defensive back did state that he wants a shot at "winning a ring," so whether he feels that's something he can accomplish in Minnesota remains to be seen, but the hope is that the deal will get done in the next few days.
Newman finished last season having played in 15 games for Minnesota (10 starts) while racking up 38 combined tackles, eight passes defensed and one interception.
