It will be Newman's 16th season and fourth overall with the Vikings. With AP Photos.The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed cornerback Terence Newman.

Picking up the option gives the Vikings a window of nearly two years to sign Waynes to an extension before he can hit free agency. He joined the Vikings in 2015.

Waynes had a takeaway in Minnesota's 2015 Wild-Card playoff game and has had crucial interceptions in wins over Green Bay at U.S. Bank Stadium in back-to-back seasons.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection is the oldest active defensive player in the league. Waynes became a full-time starter for the Vikings at the corner position in 2017 where he ended his year with 57 tackles and two interceptions. The only other players older than Newman are all kickers or punters, including Adam Vinatieri (45), Phil Dawson (43), Matt Bryant (43 on May 29), Shane Lechler (42 on August 7) and Sebastian Janikowski (40).
