The search for Aaron Brewer's replacement is over.

The Denver Broncos announced the signing of Casey Kreiter to a one-year deal on Thursday afternoon. He will now look to help Broncos Country grieve the loss of Brewer, who was cut in March. To say that move was a shock to fans and some in the media is an understatement.

Terms of the deal with Kreiter were not announced.

Kreiter spent his first two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He played in six games in the 2014-15 preseasons.

The 6-foot-1, 250-pound long snapper went to the University of Iowa, where he played with current Broncos backup center James Ferentz. Kreiter was a first-team All-Big Ten choice in 2013. He also was a Hawkeyes captain.

According to Black Heart Gold pants, Kreiter didn't miss on a field-goal or extra-point snap in college.

Prior to the Broncos signing him, Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Smyth tweeted that Kreiter was teaching science in an Iowa high school.

Now that Denver has its long snapper in place, the task of helping Broncos Country move on from Brewer is underway.
