Falcons backup C Jeremy Newberry has retired from football.
The 11-year veteran has been dealing with bad knees for years, and the knee on which microfracture surgery was performed five seasons ago was getting "worse and worse." The Falcons cut Alex Stepanovich shortly after signing Newberry, so he could be an option to return. Tue, Jul 21, 2009 11:18:00 AM

Falcons signed C Jeremy Newberry.

Entering his 12th year, the 33-year-old played behind Nick Hardwick in San Diego last season. He'll provide insurance for Atlanta at what's likely to be the veteran minimum. The Falcons should hope incumbent Todd McClure holds up and Newberry's bad knees won't be needed for any spot starts.

Chargers signed C Jeremy Newberry to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Newberry started 14 games for Oakland in 2007 and held up. He's 32 years old and has an ugly injury history, but gives San Diego nice insurance behind Nick Hardwick, whose status for Week 1 is in doubt due to foot surgery.

The Bucs have reportedly made free agent C Jeremy Newberry a contract offer.

Impending free agent C Jeremy Newberry wants to return to Oakland in 2008.

Newberry turns 32 in March and has a history of serious knee issues, but was solid in the zone blocking scheme Oakland put in place last season. Another incentive laden one-year deal would be sensible for both sides.

Free agent C Jeremy Newberry plans to visit the Bucs this weekend.
