Vikings Defense Needs Newman for Playoff Push

The Vikings re-signed Newman in March after a successful first season with the organization during which he racked up 62 combined tackles, 12 passes defended and three interceptions. He's continued to prove he can remain an effective piece in the secondary at age 38. He has 25 total tackles and one interception on the season.

He's also remained mostly durable throughout his career, which began in 2003. The Kansas State product has missed a total of just 10 games over the past seven-plus seasons. That includes appearing in every regular-season game except one since arriving in Minnesota.

Any athletic ability Newman has lost as he heads into his late 30s has been offset by experience because he continues to play at a high level for Minnesota most weeks.
