The Cardinals signed Brewer to a four-year, $4.15 million contract extension Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. The deal includes $620,000 guaranteed.
Brewer missed most of last season with the broken wrist he sustained in early October, but the Cardinals deemed the long snapper important enough to justify designating him as one of their two players to return from injured reserve. He took back long-snapping duties for the club's final three contests and will now have some job security heading into 2018 after agreeing to the extension.
The Cardinals activated Brewer (wrist) from injured reserve Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Brewer, who fractured his wrist in early October, had been practicing with the Cardinals for about a week after the team designated him as one of two players eligible to return from IR this season. He should immediately settle back in as the team's long snapper during Sunday's game against the Redskins.

The long snapper resumed practicing Wednesday, opening a three-day window during which the Cardinals will be able to evaluate him. Head coach Bruce Arians suggested the team likely wouldn't require that full block of time, as Brewer already being considered for a return to the 53-man roster as soon as Sunday's game against the Titans. Brewer has been sidelined since early October with a fractured wrist.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians clarified the nature of the long snapper's injury in his post-game press conference.

Brewer had previously been labeled as doubtful to return with an undisclosed arm injury, but it looks like his absence will now extend beyond Sunday. Defensive lineman Josh Mauro filled in at long snapper Sunday, but the Cardinals will likely need to decide on a more long-term solution for the position during their Week 6 matchup with the Buccaneers.
