Another former Eagle got a ring. This time, it was everybody’s favorite long snapper Jon Dorenbos.
No disrespect to Rick Lovato who did a hell of a job last season, but Dorenbos should have arguably been on this team. He was due about $1 million last year before being traded to the Saints. That’s when team doctors made a lifesaving discovery that he had an aortic aneurysm.
He never played football again, but remained close to the Eagles organization during their playoff run. He and his wife traveled to Minnesota with the Eagles and got a picture with the Lombardi Trophy after the win.
Owner Jeffrey Lurie promised Dorenbos he’d get a ring. He finally got his today. Video after the jump.

I don’t know which he loves more: the box or the ring. He’s amazed by it all and I love it.
Huge props to Lurie and the entire organization for pulling this off. If there was one recent former Eagle that deserved to get a Super Bowl ring, it was definitely him.
