The Philadelphia Eagles traded long snapper Jon Dorenbos to the New Orleans Saints on Monday for a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
Dorenbos joined the Eagles in 2006 after playing for the Buffalo Bills and the Tennessee Titans during his first three years in the league. The 15-year veteran played in a franchise-record 162 consecutive regular-season games for the Eagles. The 162 total games represent a tie for sixth place with Harold Carmichael in franchise history for most regular-season appearances.
"These are always hard decisions to make, especially with a player like Jon who has so much respect from the coaches, players and fans," Eagles coach Doug Peterson said. "On a personal level, it has been a pleasure to work with him and get to know him over the last few years. He's as tough and reliable as they come."
