Former Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos is usually the guy who leaves spectators breathless, not the other way around.
The famed magician from "America's Got Talent" who left football following the discovery of an aortic aneurism was promised a Super Bowl ring after the Eagles' historic victory over the New England Patriots in February.
Dorenbos was traded to the New Orleans Saints prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, ending his 11-season run in Philadelphia.
During a routine team physical, a doctor for the Saints discovered what turned out to be a life-threatening heart complication.
Dorenbos received open-heart surgery in Philadelphia spent the year in recovery, but the Eagles never forgot his contributions to the team and city.
On Thursday morning, Dorenbos received his Super Bowl ring, providing fans with a closer look at the presentation that went into the championship bling.
Dorenbos, who has performed magic shows at SugarHouse Casino, will return to the casino on Friday, Aug. 24, and Saturday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. Tickets remain on sale here.
For those who want a closer look at the making of those Super Bowl rings, the Eagles got you covered.
