CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Bengals have re-signed CB Terence Newman as an unrestricted free agent.

Newman (5-10, 192; Kansas State) is an 11th-year NFL player in 2013, entering his second Bengals season. He played his first nine seasons with Dallas after being drafted in the first round in 2003.

Newman led the Bengals last season in passes defensed (14). He was fifth on the team and second among defensive backs in tackles (75), and his two interceptions raised his career total to 34. He played and started 15 games, and for his 10 completed NFL seasons, he has averaged 14.8 games and 14.6 starts. He also has played and started six postseason games, including last year's Wild Card playoff for the Bengals.

"Terence has always had great talent, and he's become a smarter player every year of his career," said Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. "He sees things well and he challenges receivers. He's tough. He takes care of his body and doesn't miss reps. He's the kind of guy we want back as we work to keep our defense together."

The Bengals finished seventh in the NFL last season in fewest yards allowed and eighth in fewest points allowed, and Newman is the sixth defensive player who had been eligible for free agency to re-sign for '13. Re-signing previously were DE Robert Geathers, DE Wallace Gilberry, CB Adam Jones, LB Rey Maualuga and DE Michael Johnson. (Johnson was designated as the club's franchise player and has signed a one-year tender offer, with negotiation of a longer deal still an option.)

The six re-signed defensive players contributed an average of 15.5 games played and 11.2 starts to last year's effort.
