Everyone knew after Kameron Canaday botched another snap that the end was near, today the Arizona Cardinals released the rookie long snapper and brought in veteran Aaron Brewer.
The Cardinals have reached agreement with former Bears and Broncos long snapper Aaron Brewer. He replaces rookie... https://t.co/J6nhUQ70do— Josh Weinfuss (@joshweinfuss) September 28, 2016
Brewer has 64 games of experience at long snapper, including snapping in Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos. Which means he has had success in pressure situations in the NFL before.
They also brought in a gaggle, is that the right plural for punters(?), of veteran punters to tryout.
#AZCardinals worked out Ps Tim Masthay, Michael Palardy, Ryan Quigley; ILBs Joplo Bartu, James-Michael Johnson and Nate Irving.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) September 27, 2016
Tim Masthay, who had been with the Green Bay Packers since 2010 before being cut last month, Micharl Palardy, who has not had any regular season punting experience and Ryan Quigley, who has experience with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets.
While they have not signed anyone yet, based on Drew Butler's injury, they will need to make a move shortly, as Butler has an achilles and ankle injury.
Hopefully, this long snapper can get things right.
