Broncos Camp Preview: Aaron Brewer, LS

As we gear up for Broncos training camp (July 31st), Mile High Huddle will review individual players on the roster—history, evaluations, and projections moving forward—to make sure you're well-acquainted with each guy.

Aaron Brewer

Measurables: 6-foot-5, 240 pounds.

2014 stats: seven special teams tackles.

As a longsnapper, Aaron Brewer has seen action in every possible game in both his collegiate career and professional. Like almost all of his longsnapping brethren, Brewer went undrafted out of San Diego State in 2012. The Denver Broncos signed him as an undrafted free agent.

It was an interesting move, because the Broncos had one of the league’s best at the position and a well-regarded guy in the community—Lonnie Paxton—already on-roster. But a team wants to trim the fat wherever they can and they were paying Paxton more than they wanted to.

Salary cap politics played a big role in Brewer winning the longsnapper job in training camp of 2012 and making the final 53-man roster. But he has earned that job ever since, with aplomb.

In his three seasons as the Broncos longsnapper, Brewer has been perfect in his duties, converting each and every punt, field goal and extra point snap and has contributed many special teams tackles, including 18 over the last two seasons.

For his efforts, the Broncos rewarded Brewer with a four-year extension in March, which will pay him an average of close to $1M per season. There is nobody on the roster to compete with him. Aaron Brewer has his role with the team sewn up, unless he somehow regresses in the future. So far, he’s been an excellent pro.
