Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.com reports that Falcons center Jeremy Newberry is retiring. Newberry signed with the Falcons a month ago to add some veteran depth to the offensive line.
Per the report, Newberry’s knee had been bothering him since having surgery a few years back. But the knee had been getting worse and worse according to a league source.
It is possible the Falcons might re-sign center Alex Stepanovich, who the team released in order to make room for Newberry on the roster.
