Newman to Cover New Ground after Release

After 9 years in Big D Terence Newman is looking for a new home. The Dallas Cowboys Released the 5th pick from the 2003 draft on Tuesday. Newman was released at the start of the free agency period.  Newman had another strong year in 2011 with 4 interceptions, 54 tackles, and one touchdown. But some in Dallas felt that Newman wasn’t fitting in Rob Ryan’s defense. Or wasn’t just making enough big impact plays.

Drafted out of Kansas State in 2003, Newman was talked about being a shutdown corner. He lived up to the billing. With 32 career interceptions while covering the other team’s best wide receiver, Newman also made it to two Pro Bowls. Newman has had a few leg injures over his career that have slowed him a step. But Terence should get plenty of offers on the open market. He is one of the best corners in free agency. Newman was due to make $8 million dollars in 2012. A cap number the Cowboys felt was too high for Newman.
