Eagles Ink Dorenbos and Anderson, Keep the Magic Alive

If you like your longsnappers to perform killer magic tricks and sport hot wives, you’ll be relieved to know that longsnapper Jon Dorenbos has agreed to a four-year deal to stay in Philadelphia.

The team also announced a one-year deal with backup safety and special teams ace Colt Anderson.

While these moves certainly aren’t earth shattering, both players are expected to be valuable contributors to new special teams coach Dave Fipp’s unit.

“These are two players who bring not only ability but a great amount of character to their respective positions,” Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said through a team-issued statement. “We anticipate they’ll both continue to have a strong impact as leaders on special teams.”

While Roseman believes Anderson fills a specific role as a special teamer and backup safety, the 27-year-old believes he’ll be given an opportunity to start.

“They gave me a shot last year; I see no reason why they wouldn’t this year,” he said.

I could think of a few, but that’s neither here nor there.

Still, both deals are notable because they’re also likely to be the only free agents the team opts to retain this offseason. Stay tuned.
