Bio

Terence Newman is a cornerback for the Cincinnati Bengals but has spent the majority of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. He is a two-time Pro Bowler and 2002 winner of the Jim Thorpe Award for best defensive back in the NCAA.

Early Life

Newman was born in Salina Kansas on September 4, 1978. He was versatile in his athletic talents while attending Salina High School Central. He was an all-state athlete in football, basketball, baseball and track.

Kansas State Wildcats

At Kansas State, Newman continued to show his athleticism. Aside from earning starting spot as a cornerback, he was an indoor and outdoor track champion. On the football field, he was recognized as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in his senior season and won the Jim Thorpe Award.

Dallas Cowboys

Newman was selected by the Cowboys as the fifth overall pick in the 2003 draft. He was considered the most athletic on the roster by former head coach Bill Parcells. In nine seasons with the Cowboys, Newman intercepted 32 passes and established himself as a premier cornerback in the league. In 2012, the Cowboys decided to revamp their defense and Newman was released.

Cincinnati Bengals

In two years with the Cincinnati Bengals, Newman continues to be a solid defender with the ability to force turnovers. He has contributed to Cincinnati’s stingy defense as their top defensive back often defending the opposing team’s best wide receiver.
