Bengals Give Former Cowboy Terence Newman Two-Year Deal

Dallas parted ways with Newman after the 2011 season

The Cincinnati Bengals are bringing back veteran cornerback and former Cowboys star Terence Newman, with a reported two-year deal.

The Cowboys opted to part ways with Newman, their first round pick back in 2003, after nine seasons following the 2011 campaign.

Newman found a new home in Cincinnati, where he reunited with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer--who held that position with Dallas from 2000-2006--and went on to lead the team in passes defended with 14. He also added a pair of interceptions, more than enough to impress Zimmer and co.

The Bengals defensive coordinator said of Newman recently, per the Dallas Morning News, that he is “the kind of guy we want back as we work to keep our defense together.”

Cincinnati signed another former Cowboys corner, Adam “Pacman” Jones, to a one-year deal earlier this offseason.
