Long snapper Jon Dorenbos and safety Colt Anderson are staying with the Eagles.

Dorenbos signed a four-year contract on Monday, one day before he was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Anderson, who would have been a restricted free agent, signed a one-year deal.

"I'm super excited to be staying here," Dorenbos said Monday on a conference call. "My wife (Julie) and I have a long history here and we have a strong relationship with community and the team. I have to give mad props to Howie, Chip and my agent for the mutual respect they showed one another in getting this deal done."

Anderson, who was signed off Minnesota's practice squad in 2010, is regarded as the Eagles' best special teams player and also got some playing time at safety in 2012.

Depending on how the Eagles proceed in free agency - safety is one of the positions they need to upgrade - Anderson could get another shot in the secondary under new defensive coordinator Billy Davis.

"We haven't talked about it, yet," Anderson said Monday on a conference call. "I'm just glad the Eagles gave me one more year to prove myself. I wanted to be here. I consider myself a blue-collar guy, just like the city of Philadelphia. I think I fit in well."
