In the final installment of Brick, Mortar, Scrap, we take a look at the specialists. Yes, they’re football players too. The fact of the matter is, these three players had a much bigger role in the Broncos Super Bowl success than many think.
In a position group that has a perception of being a dime a dozen and few players lasting long in the league, these three players could all make strong cases to be important players for the team going forward.
Player: Aaron Brewer
Explanation: Aaron who? To many, forgetting someone is a sign of disrespect. For a long snapper in the NFL, it’s an indication of how good you are. For Aaron Brewer, being the unknown guy in the

According to various sources, Brewer has been cut by the Broncos today. I could see Brewer coming back at a lesser number, but we’ll have to see what happens. Clearly, the Broncos have other priorities higher than Brewer and we’ll see if or when he could come back.
At this time, he’ll have to explore his other options.
