The Bears on Wednesday signed long-snapper Aaron Brewer to a one-year contract.
The 6-5, 230-pounder played his first three seasons in Denver under Bears coach John Fox and special-teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers, who held the same positions with the Broncos.
Brewer entered the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted free agent from San Diego State. He has recorded eight special-teams tackles and was the long snapper for Matt Prater's NFL record 64-yard field goal on Dec. 8, 2013.
Patrick Scales, who served as the Bears' long-snapper in the last five games last season after replacing Thomas Gafford, remains on the roster.
