The #New Orleans Saints are not done making roster moves just over a week ahead of the 2017 NFL season. On Monday, New Orleans received long snapper #Jon Dorenbos through a trade with the #Philadelphia Eagles. In exchange for the veteran, the Eagles got a future pick (2019 seventh-rounder).

Dorenbos headed to Philadelphia in 2006 following brief stints with the Buffalo Bills and the Tennesse Titans. During his first year in the City of Brotherly Love, he only appeared in five games. However, since then, he has been a major part of the team's rotation. According to ESPN, the 37-year-old has played in 162 consecutive regular season games for the Eagles.

It is a franchise record that retired wide receiver Harold Carmichael achieved as well.

Dorenbos saves New Orleans

The acquisition of Dorenbos is huge for the Saints, who were looking for a long snapper to replace Justin Drescher. Earlier this August, the Saints re-signed Drescher. Unfortunately, a recent report suggested that the 29-year-old is hurt. Now, New Orleans will be relying on Dorenbos who is arguably a better player than Drescher. Dorenbos got selected to two Pro Bowl games (2009 and 2014) during his tenure in Philadelphia.

Eagles and fans react

Some of Dorenbos' former teammates in Philadelphia shared their messages to him through Twitter. Franchise Quarterback Carson Wentz stated that he is going to miss Dorenbos. Defensive end Brandon Graham had the same thought. Meanwhile, safety Chris Maragos called him an "epitome of an Eagle" and a "true pro." Maragos also thanked Dorenbos for the memories and for being a "great teammate."

If Eagles players are accepting the trade, the fans are having none of it.

In a Twitter poll conducted by CSN Philly, the majority of respondents disliked the deal. Disgruntled supporters vent their frustrations via social media. Most of them cannot believe why Philadelphia disposed of Dorenbos in return for a future seventh-rounder. One fan claimed that it was a "weak trade."

The Dorenbos-less Eagles do not have time to dwell on this matter. They must stay focused on their new campaign that starts in less than two weeks. Philadelphia still has a game left on its preseason schedule. It is against the New York Jets on the road this Thursday. Following this, the Eagles will prepare for their season opener on September 10, which is an away game taking on the Washington Redskins.
