Jon Dorenbos, a NFL long snapper who gained additional fame as a popular contestant on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, has been traded by the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Monday.

The Eagles traded Dorenbos to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a 7th round pick in 2019.

Entering his 15th season, Dorenbos signed with the Eagles in 2006 after spending his first three years in the league with the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans. During his time with the Birds, Dorenbos was named to the Pro Bowl twice and appeared in a franchise-record 162 consecutive regular season games, tying Eagles Hall of Fame wide receiver Harold Carmichael.

Dorenbos was also named the Eagles’ Ed Block Courage Award recipient in 2008. The award honors NFL players who exemplify sportsmanship and courage and is given by a vote of the team based on effort and individual performance. Dorenbos was also selected as the Eagles’ nominee for the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2016.

In addition to his exploits on the field, Dorenbos also appealed to a different audience during his time on America’s Got Talent in which he showed off his magic skills and tricks, finishing in third place in the competition’s final in 2016.
