It's often a bad sign when NFL players are making headlines during the offseason, but the opposite is true with Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos.
Dorenbos, entering his 14th NFL season, decided to try his luck with a different form of competition – game shows. And having taken an interest in magic at the age of 12 after his mother's death, Dorenbos hit "America's Got Talent" to test his skills on the national stage.
Without giving away too much, we'll just say he met expectations – and then some. In this video posted to AGT's YouTube account, Dorenbos amazes the crowd and judges with a phenomenal array of card tricks:
First-year head coach Doug Pederson has to be proud of his snapper's efforts, but one couldn't blame him for also being a bit nervous. AGT seasons routinely go into September, meaning that too much domination from Dorenbos could impact his availability come fall – a scenario hinted at in this Tweet by AGT host Nick Cannon:

But once the regular season gets underway, we'd expect Dorenbos – the longest tenured player on the Eagles, having been on the team since 2006 – to be out there. A two-time Pro Bowler, he has played in 150 consecutive regular-season games for Philadelphia, ranking third in franchise history.
