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.

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.
