Terence Newman has stepped up this week into his leadership role and has a lot of confidence in the secondary this season. Other than Newman, the faces will be young and refreshing this upcoming season. There is no more Roy Williams, Keith Davis, Anthony Henry or Pacman Jones. It’s time to embrace Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick, and that’s exactly what Terence Newman has done.
“I think we’re going to be one of the top secondaries out there. We’ve got all the talent.”
While Newman’s health is always questionable, his own talent has never been doubted. He is an excellent mentor to these young stars, and he should be applauded for embracing that role.
There is nothing more motivating than when your veterans take charge and get the young guys to follow their lead.
The Cowboys defense has several leaders in their prime with Bradie James, DeMarcus Ware and Terence Newman. James is 28, Ware is 26 and Newman is 30. Along with these three veterans the Cowboys have added a lot of talent to their already powerful lineup. Despite several big names like Greg Ellis and Chris Canty leaving Dallas, the defense is still extremely strong and talented.
It’s definitely something to get excited about!
