PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles re-signed long snapper Jon Dorenbos and safety/special teams standout Colt Anderson.
“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 (Chip) 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, who was set to become an unrestricted free agent, signed a four- year deal with the team, while Anderson inked a one-year pact.
Dorenbos originally singed with Philadelphia during the 2006 season, and has served as the team's long snapper ever since.
Anderson joined the Eagles during the 2010 campaign after serving on Minnesota's practice squad. He has recorded 30 special teams tackles in 34 career games.
Over 14 games -- four starts -- in 2012, Anderson tallied 33 tackles and recorded his first career interception in a Week 16 loss to Washington.
