Jon Dorenbos was extremely talented on America’s Got Talent, but oh yeah, he plays football too.

If you’re a brand new player entering the New Orleans Saints organization, then what better way to win over your new teammates with a magic trick? That’s just what veteran long snapper Jon Dorenbos did in a card trick in the team’s locker room after practice.

Just watch the team video from Obum Gwacham and Mark Ingram, it’s worth it. Also, check out his performances from the eleventh season of America’s Got Talent here. Spoiler alert, he made it to the finals with some amazing tricks that will make your jaw drop.

It looks like Dorenbos, who was acquired via a trade two days ago from the Philadelphia Eagles, won’t have any trouble fitting in with the team, and is expected to solidify the Saints’ long snapper trek that has seen four different players (Jesse Schmitt, Chase Dominguez, Thomas Gafford, Justin Drescher) before Dorenbos.

Both the Eagles organization and fans have spoke highly of Dorenbos’ character on and off the field. The Saints appear to have acquired a real winner who will fit in nicely in the Crescent City, and all at the small cost of a 2019 7th Round pick.
