Joe Reedy's post on Cincinnati Bengals | Latest updates on Sulia
So how close was Terence Newman to picking the Raiders over the Bengals?
In Newman's words "I honestly was very, very, very, very close to going to Oakland. Reggie McKenzie has great insight and I think he's going to be a very, very good addition to helping things in Oakland. I just liked the conversation we had. For what I wanted and how I would expect my career to end, if it is to end in two years this (Cincinnati) is a football team that has made the playoffs the last two years. The defense played well. Looking at those things, I thought this was probably the best place for me. I have the utmost respect for Zim, and I've known a lot of his family since I was in Dallas. To me, it was important to do things the right way, and that was to come back here."
