Brewer competed hard in training camp that year and won the job. From 2012 through Super Bowl 50, Brewer was absolutely perfect as the Broncos long-snapper.
No bad snaps. Always well-placed to the holder. And he contributed tackles on special teams, netting eight in his four years in Denver.
Last year, the Broncos extended Brewer on a four-year deal that would pay him an average of about $1 million per season. However, after just one season, the Broncos released Brewer last week.
It didn't take Brewer long to catch on somewhere else, with someone familiar.
Brewer will be reunited with John Fox, his head coach for three of his four years in the league. It's hard to say why Denver released Brewer. He was literally perfect on the field.
Something must have happened behind closed doors that made the Broncos pull the trigger on releasing him. Nothing else makes sense.
Hopefully, this inexplicable roster move doesn't come back to haunt the Broncos. The value of a perfect snap when a game is on the line, is at a premium.
