Although he didn’t play this season, Jon Dorenbos is still a part of the Philadelphia Eagles.

This entire year was incredible for fans and players of the Philadelphia Eagles. After a long offseason, exciting regular season and an intense postseason. Everything worked out in the Eagles favor in the end. With that, they are the NFL’s 2018 Super Bowl champions. For the first time ever, the Vince Lombardi Trophy is coming to Philadelphia as their own.

In typical champion fashion, everybody that is part of the Eagles organization will get their own championship ring. Everyone from the players to the front office will get their sick champions jewelry at some point in the near future. So guys like Brian Dawkins will get their first championship hardware even though they are no longer playing.

The Eagles did not want to forget one of their own, though. The magic man Jon Dorenbos will get his piece of the pie as well. Despite not playing for the Eagles at all this year, Dorenbos will be issued a Super Bowl LII ring along with the rest of the team!

Once an Eagle, always an Eagle:

Eagles owner, Jeffery Lurie flew Dorenbos out to Minnesota so he could watch the Eagles win it all in person. Obviously, it would’ve been great to see Dorenbos be suited up for the big game. But his presence was good enough for his former teammates and the fan base. Now that it’s all said and done, Dorenbos will forever be a part of the Eagles 2017-2018 team.

Lurie’s kind gesture towards Dorenbos speaks volumes about what kind of player he was. Before the trade to New Orleans went down, Dorenbos was the longest tenured Eagle on the roster. Although he didn’t play a major position, he was still a good personality for the Eagles locker room considering what type of person he is. Also, the magic videos after practice were awesome!
