If the Eagles are to jump into this new era of football, key contributors will need to accompany them. Unlike the majority of the roster, two names fought hard under the radar, and will now cash in.
The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos and Safety Colt Anderson. Dorenbos signed a four-year deal Monday, while Colt Anderson will return on a one-year contract.
Eagles GM Howie Roseman released a statement regardig the moves:
“We are excited Jon and Colt will remain members of our team,” said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. “These are two players who bring not only ability but a great amount of character to their respective positions. We anticipate they’ll both continue to have a strong impact as leaders on special teams. Coach Kelly and I spoke about both players throughout the past several weeks and we both thought it was important for our club moving forward that we get a deal done with Jon and Colt before they hit the free agent market.”
Dorenbos has spent the duration of his career in Philadelphia, a true Eagle. Dorenbos has started every game since arriving in 2006. He earned a Pro Bowl berth in 2009, as the NFC’s Long Snapper.
