Bengals coach Marvin Lewis says the team is working to add former Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman in free agency.
Newman was cut by the Cowboys two weeks ago because of his age, salary and declining play.
But the Bengals, according to Lewis, "would love to have Newman our football team". He said the former 2003 first round pick is excited to join the Bengals where he will be reunited with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer from his early days with the Cowboys when Newman said he played his best football.
"We would love to still add terence to our football team," Lewis said. "As he said his best years of his career was when he was playing for Mike Zimmer. So he is excited about that opportunity to. Hopefully we will get something concluded here fairly quickly."
Asked he felt Newman still has something left, Lewis smiled and said "we would love to have Terence on our football team."
