Newman can give it one more run, no matter how the postseason ends for the Vikings. Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Logically, many would expect 39-year-old Terence Newman to retire if the Minnesota Vikings were to win a Super Bowl.

However, the veteran cornerback isn’t willing to go that far yet.

“Let’s just say hypothetically speaking that I was able to (win a Super Bowl), then why not try to get two?” Newman said Thursday, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “You can look at it at both sides.”

Could Newman still be a quality player at age 40?

“I don’t have any problems with that,” Newman said.

Newman is, in fact, still performing at a high level, much to the amazement of some of his peers. Obviously he’s not putting the cart ahead of the horse here, but he’s clearly given his future some thought and doesn’t appear ready to retire yet. That’s good news for the Vikings, no matter how their playoff run plays out.
