Former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman, after signing a one-year deal worth $825,000 with the Bengals on April 11, has largely performed in a replacement role for injured cornerbacks Leon Hall and Nate Clements during this offseason's organized training sessions, including Tuesday's minicamp practice. Many have questioned if he'd make the team, due to the obvious decline in Dallas, which he blamed on poor technique and a nagging hamstring issue. Soon after the team signed Newman, Marvin Lewis said:

"Terence is a guy who has played at an extremely high level who still has athleticism and speed," Lewis said on Wednesday. "We're anxious to work with him and coach him on technique and play in the style that we would like him to play. As he would say he had his best years when he was under Mike's (Zimmer's) coaching."

Carlos Holmes with the Dayton Daily News observed from Tuesday's practice:

Cornerback Terence Newman, 33, may be getting up there in age but showed he can still make plays. He made a nice play on one pass for a near interception and pass breakup on another play. Newman showed his physicality in coverage, knocking receivers off their routes.

Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer observed the same thing from Tuesday, adding "Terence Newman dropped an interception on a pass thrown down the middle."
