Newman, who will be 40 in September, will play his 16th National Football League season in 2018 and provides valuable locker room leadership and is also still productive on the field.
But with Mike Zimmer's penchant for slowly bringing cornerbacks along, Waynes will likely continue to take on a starring role in the Vikings secondary for the foreseeable future.
The team announced it has exercised its fifth-year option on the former Michigan State cornerback, who started all 16 games for the first time in his four-year career in 2017. Newman joined Zimmer in Cincinnati for two seasons, and has been in Minnesota since 2015.

The only other players older than Newman are all kickers or punters, including Adam Vinatieri (45), Phil Dawson (43), Matt Bryant (43 on May 29), Shane Lechler (42 on August 7) and Sebastian Janikowski (40).
