Eagles trade long snapper Jon Dorenbos to Saints

Saints acquire long snapper Jon Dorenbos in trade with Eagles

"Jon is one of the most inspiring people I have ever known", Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said, as reported at PhiladelphiaEagles.com. "Even though he won't be on the field with us this year, we hope that he will one day return to retire as an Eagle, and rejoin our organization in some capacity".

In addition to his love of football, Dorenbos was also well-renowned for his skill as a magician, which earned him a third-place in front of a national audience on NBC's America's Got Talent past year. During his time with the Birds, Dorenbos was named to the Pro Bowl twice and appeared in a franchise-record 162 consecutive regular season games, tying Eagles Hall of Fame wide receiver Harold Carmichael.

Dorenbos and the Eagles agreed on a three-year, $3.4 million contract extension last year.

While he was 12 years old, his father, Alan Dorenbos, bludgeoned his mother, Kathy, to death in the garage of their suburban Seattle home.

Jon Dorenbos, Philly's "magic man", is no longer a member of the Eagles.

Oh and yes he's the "America's Got Talent" magician guy.

In addition to his longevity, magic tricks and energetic attitude, Dorenbos was endearing to Eagles fans because of his tragic backstory.

The Eagles will move forward with Rich Lovato, who has bounced around the National Football League a bit but hasn't stuck. "We all remember adding him to the team in 2006 and winning six straight games to win the division and a playoff game".

"He's a veteran player", Payton said of Dorenbos. We are pleased that an opportunity presented itself to allow Jon to continue his career with the Saints, and we wish him all the best.

They've come up with a pretty good solution.
