Minnesota Vikings cornerback Terence Newman is so old that he was born before Ronald Reagan became America’s 40th president. And the Vikings made sure to remind the long-time defensive back of that on his 39th birthday on Labor Day.

That’s an absolutely brilliant birthday cake right there.
Old man brain. Dentures. A newspaper. Simply amazing.
Newman is entering his 15th season in the NFL and third with the Vikings. Last season saw Newman record 38 tackles, eight passes defended and an interception in 15 games (nine starts). He was one of the better cover guys in the game.
Though, to be playing at this level at 39 years old is pretty darn awesome. After all, rookie Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was eight years old when Newman made his NFL debut for the Dallas Cowboys back in 2003.
