New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton has announced on Friday morning that long snapper Jon Dorenbos will require an immediate open-heart surgery because of an aortic aneurysm.
This very serious medical condition was discovered during a post-trade physical, following the transaction that brought him to New Orleans from Philadelphia on August 28. This sad news could mean the 6-foot, 250-pound athlete has played his last game in the National Football League.
The 37-year-old first played in the NFL 2003, after signing as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills. He played there for two seasons, before moving with the Tennessee Titans. He then joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006, where he played until 2016.
