Terence Newman Profile
The Cincinnati Bengals brought in four players for visits today, including former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman and New England Patriots free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
They also hosted former Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos defensive end Derrick Harvey and Houston Texans free agent tight end Joel Dreessen.
The market has been slow for running backs, even reliable, productive ones like Green-Ellis.
Newman was due an $8 million salary-cap figure for next season with Dallas before being cut.
Newman, 33, didn't have a particularly strong season last year.
Newman recorded four interceptions and 10 pass deflections last season.
He has intercepted 32 career passes.
Newman finished last season with 57 tackles last season.
Harvey is a former Jaguars first-round draft pick who has been a disappointment after starring at the University of Florida.
Dreessen provides a strong blocking presence.
The Bengals have a ton of salary-cap room, but have only signed offensive guard Travelle Wharton and cornerback Jason Allen and re-signed safety Reggie Nelson.
