Kats Cade Brewer Called Up To The NFL's 49ers

Cade Brewer, the formidable tight end who joined the Nashville Kats for their 2024 season, has made an impressive leap to the San Francisco 49ers. Brewer's journey from the University of Texas to the NFL has been marked by significant impact and a rich history of football excellence. At Texas, he played in 55 games with 33 starts and stood out among UT tight ends with 59 career receptions, 611 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns, earning All-Big 12 honorable mention in both 2020 and 2021.

Brewer's perseverance and skill were evident as he overcame injuries and continued to perform at a high level, highlighted by his role with the Kats. In their season opener against the Minnesota Myth, Brewer contributed three receptions for 58 yards, helping the Kats secure a 47-12 victory by gaining crucial field positions for scores. His journey took an exciting turn when he was picked up by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent before his time with the Kats. His stellar performance and potential caught the eye of the 49ers, leading to his recent call-up.

This transition from college to professional arena football, and now to the NFL, showcases Brewer’s adaptability and readiness for the highest levels of the sport. The Nashville Kats are proud to have been a stepping stone in his promising career and look forward to seeing his continued success with the 49ers. Join us in wishing Cade Brewer the very best as he embarks on this exciting new chapter of his football career.

Congratulations to Cade on this wonderful opportunity with the 49ers," Kats coach Dean Cokinos said. "This is exactly what we want for our Kats players. Sure, we will miss Cade as a person and a player. But through our evaluation processes for all our players, we want to identify players with a high ceiling who are also engaged in our community."

In his one game with the Kats, Brewer had a team-high three catches for 58 yards with a long of 31 yards and an average of 19.3 yards per catch.
