Terence Newman has spent 13 seasons in the NFL, 7 of which were spent with Mike Zimmer. While he is 36 (37 when the season starts) there is no doubt he is past his prime and looked at as a 1 year rental. That said, he has a good chance of pushing for some serious playing time in 2015. He will come in and battle Josh Robinson for playing time to go along with Captain Munnerlyn and...

During his NFL career between the 49ers and Bengals Mays has yet to get an INT and has not broken 100 tackles...
