Niners' Newberry Makes Pro Bowl
Jan. 16, 2002
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) _ San Francisco 49ers center Jeremy Newberry was added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster Wednesday.
Newberry, a fourth-year pro who will be making his first Pro Bowl appearance, replaces Minnesota's Matt Birk, who is getting married the day before the Feb. 9 game in Hawaii.
In just his second full season as a center, Newberry was a key contributor to the 49ers' rushing attack, which ranked second in the NFL. Playing through an ankle injury, he started 15 games.
