Professional career

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 1999 he started all 16 games, first at right tackle then at right guard. 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. [1] Newberry was regarded as a tough, tenacious blocker with great technique in both run and pass protection. He was also the leader of the offensive line. On two occasions, Newberry was awarded the 49ers "Bobb McKittrick award", which is given to the team’s offensive lineman who best exemplifies the dedication, excellence and commitment.

Oakland Raiders

On March 6, 2007, Newberry was signed by the Oakland Raiders. He started all 14 games in which he appeared for the 4-12 Raiders that season, replacing Jake Grove, before becoming a free agent the following offseason, replaced by Grove.

San Diego Chargers
