Jon Dorenbos trade reaction: Eagles teammates show love, fans upset

Jon Dorenbos has completed his final act as a member of the Eagles. On Monday night, Dorenbos, who signed with the Eagles nearly 11 years ago and played in 162 games for the team, was traded to the New Orleans Saints for a seventh-round pick in 2019 (see story).

A fan favorite because of his personality, third-place finish on America’s Got Talent for his magic act, and his play on the field (a two-time Pro Bowler), there was a very strong reaction on social media to the move.

His now ex-teammates sent messages of support.

The fan reaction, however, was as negative as we have seen in recent memory for a trade. Here’s a sampling of how the fans are reacting to the move.

Dorenbos was actually the second long snapper traded today as the Colts traded for long snapper Thomas Hennessy. Howie Roseman must like the value of a draft pick for the 37-year-old Dorenbos, but he’ll hear from a lot of angry fans should the Eagles have any snapping issues this season.
