Don't Lose the Magic: Eagles Re-up Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos for Four Years

Don't Lose the Magic: Eagles Re-up Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos for Four Years

The Eagles, oh boy, they have big needs and lots of them. Cornerback.
Safety. And very nearly long snapper. At least they took care of that last one before
free agency officially began, re-signing reliable Jon Dorenbos to a four-year
deal much to the city’s relief.

In all seriousness, the Eagles like everybody else do
require a long snapper, and there was no reason to let the one they have walk
away. Dorenbos has been with the team since he replaced Mike Bartrum midway
into 2006. He even made the Pro Bowl in ’09.

Dorenbos doesn’t really do much else on the gridiron, but he
is a part-time magician. Both he and his wife Julie’s antics off the field have
provided us with enjoyment through the years.

As a footnote, special teams ace Colt Anderson also avoided
a restricted free agent tender by agreeing to a one-year deal.

BOX SCORE

PHILADELPHIA — Kurt Rawlings connected with Christopher Williams-Lopez for a 4-yard touchdown with 4:11 remaining in the game and Yale rallied for a 24-19 victory over Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Rawlings threw for 199 yards and two scores for the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 Ivy League), who won at Penn (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since 2007. Yale's Zane Dudek carried 12 times for 103 yards and a score.

The Quakers, who trailed 18-10 at the half, recovered a pair of fumbles in the fourth quarter to take a 19-18 lead. The first turnover led to Jack Soslow's 44-yard field goal and the second resulted in a 2-yard TD run by Tre Solomon. But Rawlings led the Bulldogs on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.

Penn senior Justin Watson caught 10 passes for 120 yards and a 23-yard touchdown reception. It was an Ivy League record 16th career game with at least 100 yards receiving and he tied a school record with a TD catch in his sixth straight game. His 27 career scores ties the school record.
