The Denver Broncos announced they have agreed to terms with long snapper Casey Kreiter, who replaces Aaron Brewer on the special teams unit.
The Denver Broncos have filled a gaping void on their roster just three weeks before the NFL Draft by signing free agent long snapper Casey Kreiter to a one-year contract.
Kreiter was signed to fill the void left by Aaron Brewer, who was somewhat of a surprise cut by the Broncos at the outset of free agency. I think most of Broncos Country was sort of confused by that move, but Mike Klis of 9News in Denver cited ‘behavioral’ issues as the reasoning for Brewer’s departure.
He latched on with the Chicago Bears not too long ago, but the Broncos decided to move in a different direction for one reason or another, and now the former Iowa Hawkeye Casey Kreiter is in town to do the long snapping.
There will be no football involved in the Broncos’ first OTAs on April 18th, but it’s nice to go into your offseason program with a full complement of special teams players, I would imagine. They might not be done adding to the long snapper competition, as Kreiter signed just a one-year deal.
The Broncos signed Kreiter away from a high school Anatomy teaching job, which is one of a number of reasons to love this move for Denver.
1. You can never have too many Iowa Hawkeyes on the roster, and
2. Kreiter defies the law of ‘i before e except after c’
All kidding aside, the Broncos continue to make moves, and it continues to make us all happy. A whole host of long snappers tried out for Denver on Thursday, and the best man was apparently Kreiter.
All is well.
