San Francisco 49ers

Newberry joined the 49ers in 1998, but missed the first nine weeks of season after suffering a torn ACL in offseason mini-camp. He was inactive for the rest of the season as well.

In 2000 he started every game again, taking over center duties when Chris Dalman suffered a career-ending neck injury in offseason training camp. In 2000, his first season playing center in the NFL, the offensive line was third in the league, allowing only 25 sacks. Newberry was put on injured reserve after major microfracture surgery on his left knee in August, 2006.
