Terence Newman agrees to re-sign with Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals cornerback Terence Newman visited the Oakland Raiders on Thursday. But the unrestricted free agent decided on Friday to stay put in Cincy.

"After much time and thought, I'm heading back to Cincy," tweeted the 10-season veteran. "And for those of you who think it was about money, the Raiders offered more."
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport cites a source who has been informed of Newman's status to report that the agreement in principle is for two years at $5 million. Newman will get $3 million in the first year and is expected to sign in the next few days.

Nearly a week ago, the two-time Pro Bowl pick called out his agent on Twitter, saying he couldn't reach his reps to get his deal done.

"If anyone sees Ben Dogra of CAA, tell him I'd like him to get my deal finalized so if he could call me it would be appreciated," he wrote.

On Friday, he cited Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer as a factor behind his decision to stay.
"I came in with Mike Zimmer and feel its only right that I leave as him coaching me," Newman posted. "Thanks to Raiders Nation for showing me such love."
