The Broncos and long snapper Aaron Brewer agreed to a new four-year deal on Thursday, avoiding what would have been an unwieldly $1.52M restricted tender. It's likely that Brewer will receive a relatively small signing bonus and continue to draw minimum salaries - $660K in 2015, and $745K for each of the next three seasons.
Denver likely receives a substantial cap savings with the deal, as his cap number for 2015 is probably half of what it would have been under the RFA tender. The Broncos still have two impending restricted free agents in Tony Carter and Steven Johnson, but are not expected to tender Carter.
As Jason Fitzgerald recently explained, teams usually wait until after the RFA tender period to extend players, but the Broncos were able to lock up Brewer a bit early.
