With AP Photos.The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed cornerback Terence Newman.

The Minnesota Vikings have exercised their fifth-year option on cornerback Trae Waynes, the team announced on Monday per Eric Smith of their official website. I am just going to go out and do the same things I've always done.

Waynes has been a starter for the last two seasons, opposite All-Pro Xavier Rhodes. The other complaint was that he was far too handsy, as the rules in the National Football League are a lot more strict than the NCAA in terms of contact between corners and receivers.

As he enters his fourth season out of Michigan State, the former first-round pick's numbers have only improved with each passing season as he has gotten more involved on defense. They took Mike Hughes out of UCF in the first round (No. 30 overall) and also added Holton Hill as an undrafted free agent. He has played in all but two games, including the postseason, through his first three seasons. With the Vikings facing Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford four times a year, it makes sense that the Vikings would invest in their corners the way they have even if it's been at the detriment of the offensive line.

Newman will be 40 when the 2018 season begins. In 2017, the 39-year-old Newman was on the field for 555 snaps, which was the third-highest total among all Vikings corners.
