Producer Mike Tollin has made numerous films and documentaries on sports figures, but the deal he has just closed with Jon Dorenbos puts on a fast track Tollin’s first about a long snapper who moonlights as a magician. Dorenbos spent most of his 15 seasons on a football field as the long snapper for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team that just won the Super Bowl. Freshly retired, Dorenbos is focusing on that second career, after a memorable recent stint on America’s Got Talent.
Forced to retire from the NFL in September, former Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos was there with his teammates at Super Bowl LII. Even better, owner Jeffrey Lurie will reward Dorenbos for his 12 seasons of service the best way imaginable — with a ring.
