    The Eagles made a couple moves that will affect their special teams today, re-signing safety Colt Anderson and long-snapper Jon Dorenbos.

    “We are excited Jon and Colt will remain members of our team,â€￾ said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman in a statement. “These are two players who bring not only ability but a great amount of character to their respective positions. We anticipate they’ll both continue to have a strong impact as leaders on special teams. Coach [Chip] Kelly and I spoke about both players throughout the past several weeks and we both thought it was important for our club moving forward that we get a deal done with Jon and Colt before they hit the free agent market.â€￾

    Anderson led the Eagles with 166 special-teams points (tracked by coaches), even though he missed a pair of games as he recovered from a torn ACL suffered late in the 2011 season. Anderson also started four games at safety and had some nice moments, especially against the run. The 27-year-old inked a one-year deal.

    Dorenbos, meanwhile, signed a four-year deal. He joined the team in 2006 and has appeared in 101 games for the Eagles.
