Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos will be appearing on America’s Got Talent to showcase his skills as a magician.

Like many of us, Dorenbos saw his first magician at a young age—13. Unlike many of us, Dorenbos was so taken with the act he decided to become a magician himself. 

AGT really seems to be hyping up Dorenbos’s athletic talents, with judge Howie Mandel even pretending to know who Dorenbos is. You can watch a sneak peek of Dorenbos’s appearance below. 

The Eagles better have a sick fake-punt play lined up for this season. 

UPDATE: Here’s the video of Dorenbos’s performance:


If Dorenbos is as good a long snapper as magician, the Eagles may have a shot this year.
