Analyzing the terms of new Dolphins OL Aaron Brewer’s contract

The Miami Dolphins have signed many free agents already this offseason to fill some of the biggest holes on their roster heading into the 2024 season, including offensive lineman Aaron Brewer.

Brewer, 26, agreed to a three-year deal (with two void years tacked on the end) worth $21 million to join the Dolphins after spending his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans.

According to Over the Cap, Brewer will receive base salaries of $1.13 million in 2024, $6.47 million in 2025 and $6.47 million in 2026. The deal also includes a $5.59 million signing bonus (prorated at $1.12 million each year), $1.28 million in per-game roster bonuses ($260,000 in 2024, $510,000 in 2025) and $75,000 in workout bonuses ($25,000 each year).

His cap hits are currently set to be $ 2.53 million in 2024, $8.12 million in 2025 and 2026 and $2.24 million in 2027.

Brewer’s contract is set to void at the end of the 2026 season, meaning that if, at that point, the team doesn’t extend him, they’ll have a $2.24 million dead-cap hit in 2027.

At this point, he appears to be the team’s starting center, but there’s a chance he could move back to guard if the team finds a more suitable option to man the middle of the line.
