With Waynes now in the fold for at least two more seasons, the Vikings will look to build on a season that saw them reach the NFC Championship game. The Vikings also drafted Mike Hughes out of Central Florida in the first round Thursday.

After deciding to return for a 16th National Football League season, Terence Newman made it clear that he believes the 2018 campaign will be his farewell tour. His veteran presence is an important asset, as cornerbacks like Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander have discussed the benefit of his guidance. I am just going to go out and do the same things I've always done. Waynes played a critical role in the Vikings' secondary that allowed a mere 192.4 passing yards per game in 2017, which ranked second in the NFL.

He also notched his first career sack.

"NATO is wonderful, but it helps Europe more than it helps us", Trump said ahead of his meeting with the German leader. Luxembourg s veteran Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn told AFP Pompeo had got his point across without causing upset.

Waynes has a future in this defensive backfield, especially if the 25-year-old continues to improve at the rate he has through three years.

For his career, Waynes has five interceptions and 35 passes defensed. With the Vikings facing Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford four times a year, it makes sense that the Vikings would invest in their corners the way they have even if it's been at the detriment of the offensive line.

Newman-who will be 40 when the season kicks off-may not be the Pro Bowler he once was, but he still provides Mike Zimmer and Co. quality snaps.
