Early life and college career

Born in Riverside, California,[1] Brewer graduated from Riverside Polytechnic High School. He first attended Riverside Junior College in 1997 and played one year of football there. In 1998, Brewer transferred to San Jose State University and majored in business management. From 1998 to 2000, Brewer played on the San Jose State Spartans football team.[2]

Professional career

Cincinnati Bengals

Brewer was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round (66th overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft. However shortly after being drafted by the Bengals, it was discovered that Brewer had a three-pack-a-day cigarette addiction.[3] As a rookie in 2001, Brewer did not see any game action due to a pulled groin. Brewer sat out of the May 2002 mini-camp and voluntary workouts due to a slightly torn hamstring.[4] He returned to practice on May 21, 2002.[5]

The Bengals promoted Brewer to be the number-one tight end after waiving Tony McGee.[5][6] Brewer was competing with Reggie Kelly, Matt Schobel, and Tony Stewart for the starting tight end position.[7] Despite suffering from a bruised kneecap, Brewer played in the first three games of the 2002 season.[4][1] In Week 3 on September 22, Brewer sprained his left knee.[8] Projected to be out for 3 to 4 weeks,[9] Brewer had knee surgery on October 28, 2002 and was placed on injured reserve one week later.[10][11] After battling with Schobel for the starting job once again in 2003, he was waived on August 31, 2003.[12]

Atlanta Falcons

One day after being waived by the Bengals, Brewer was claimed by the Atlanta Falcons.[2] During the 2003 season he made nine appearances,[1] mostly on special teams and goal line plays.[13] On March 2, 2004, Brewer re-signed with the Falcons.[14] He was waived on June 30, 2004.[15]

Washington Redskins

On July 21, 2004, Brewer signed with the Washington Redskins.[16][13] He was released on August 1, after the first day of training camp.[17]

San Diego Chargers

Following his release from the Redskins, Brewer was invited to try out with the San Diego Chargers on May 4, 2005.[18] The Chargers signed Brewer on May 13.[19] Brewer missed some practices due to knee injury and was released on August 30, 2005.[20][21]
