Eagles sign Kafka's top receiver

       Kafka didn't look for
 Brewer here.
The Eagles signed Andrew Brewer to replace wide receiver Ron Johnson, who dislocated and fractured an ankle Monday.

Johnson was waived-injured. The USC product had surgery Tuesday to put the ankle that popped badly out of line back into place.

Brewer (6-3, 215) played two seasons in the United Football League with the Omaha Nighthawks, where he was acquired by Rick Mueller, now in player personnel with the Eagles.

At Northwestern Brewer switched from quarterback to wide receiver finishing with 76 receptions for 1,118 yards and nine touchdowns.

In 2009 Brewer set a school single-season record averaging 16.2 yards per catch with 57 receptions for 925 yards. Brewer caught nine of Kafka''s 16 touchdown passes that year.
