Terence Newman Struggling to Decide Between Raiders and Bengals



Free agent cornerback Terence Newman continues to struggle on where he will play in 2013, as he’s mulling over contract offers from the Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals. With the Bengals already having Leon Hall, Adam Jones, and 2012 first-rounder Dre Kirkpatrick on the roster, it’s safe to say the Raiders are probably offering more money right now, while the Bengals offer him a greater chance to compete in the playoffs.

Since 2003, the Raiders are 45-111 with no playoff appearances. They would have to be offering a significantly better deal to make Newman want to sign with them. Still, it’s clearly a tough decision for him based just his tweets from this week:





My guess is someone else will swoop in and sign Newman. I just don’t think the Bengals are offering him the kind of money he deserves after being the 19th-highest rated corner by Pro Football Focus in 2012. Watch out for  CB-needy teams like the Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, or Sand Diego Chargers to enter the Newman sweepstakes before all is said and done.
