On the eve of training camp, Dorenbos’ magic continued to impress his teammates:
After Eagles practice on Wednesday, Doug Pederson was asked about his long snapper's performance. His response was both pretty funny and very supportive.
"He represents us, the organization, this city on that show like a professional," Pederson said. "Obviously his talent is something I think when football is said and done for him, he's definitely got a career in Las Vegas or Atlantic City or wherever. Yeah, I'm pulling for him and excited for where he can go."
As for any future taping schedules potentially interfering with training camp, Pederson said that the Eagles and Dorenbos "will just go day-by-day."
