The Eagles traded long Snapper Jon Dorenbos to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night for a 2019 seventh-round pick, parting ways with their longest-tenured player and one of the organization’s most popular figures.
“He gave everything that he had to this organization for more than a decade, but his legacy in Philadelphia goes far beyond his performance on the field, his Pro Bowl selections or the consecutive games streak.
His true impact is measured by the number of people in this city that he connected with, the lives he has been able to change and the courage he displays every day after battling such tremendous adversity as a child.
Dorenbos transcended the Philadelphia sports scene last year when he appeared on “America’s Got Talent.” At age 12, Dorenbos’ father, Alan, killed his mother during a dispute in their home.
