Jon Dorenbos, magician and former Eagles player, gets Super Bowl ring

Former Eagles player and America’s Got Talent finalist Jon Dorenbos is sharing in the Super Bowl magic despite not playing with the team last season.

The Eagles posted a video Thursday on Twitter of Dorenbos receiving a Super Bowl ring.

Dorenbos, a long-snapper who spent 11 seasons with the team, was a popular figure in the Eagles locker room, known for his gregarious personality and for entertaining teammates with magic tricks.

He was traded to the Saints before the start of last season but retired in September when it was discovered he needed heart surgery, ending his football career.

Dorenbos learned magic as a boy to help him cope with the death of his mother, who was killed by his father. He performed on NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2016 and finished in third place.

Rays: Two-way prospect Brendan McKay is on Class-A Charlotte’s disabled list with an oblique injury.

Tampa Bay reinstated INF Daniel Robertson (left hamstring strain) from the 10-day DL and optioned RHP Austin Pruitt and outrighted OF Rob Refsnyder to Triple-A Durham.

Yankees RHP Sonny Gray (5-4) and Rays RHP Wilmer Font (0-3) are Saturday’s scheduled starters.

The name remained on the stadium for two seasons despite the fact that Sports Authority made the decision to close all their stores by the summer of 2016.

In a statement, Broncos chief commercial officer Mac Freeman said the team has had many productive conversations and is confident it will find the right partner.

A deal would help pay for stadium maintenance.

Although they are missing Miguel Cabrera, who is on the disabled list with a ruptured biceps tendon, the rebuilding Tigers are in second place in the AL Central, six games behind the division-leading Indians.

It seems like they are playing with more energy, Francona said. Sometimes when a guy goes down, a team takes the mentality of ‘us against the world.’ You use whatever you can, and they are doing a good job using that.

The Tigers on Saturday will start left-hander Francisco Liriano (3-2, 3.90 ERA), who will be activated off the disabled list, and will make his first major league start since May 26. The Tigers lost that game 8-4, to the White Sox.
