The Bears added another player who has a history with coach John Fox when they signed long-snapper Aaron Brewer to a one-year contract on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Brewer was the Broncos' long snapper for the past four seasons (2012-15) and played in all 64 regular-season games and all eight postseason games. He signed a four-year, $4 million deal in Denver a year ago that included a $740,000 signing bonus, but he was waived last week.

 

When Bears special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers held the same position in Denver, he coached Brewer for three years (2012-14). Brewer entered the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego State.

The Bears started last season with Thomas Gafford as their long-snapper, but he was waived on Nov. 28 and replaced by Patrick Scales, who played in the final five games and remains on the roster.
