Eagles’ Jason Kelce Returning for 2023

All-Pro Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce is returning for a 13th NFL season, he announced on Twitter on Monday.

Kelce, 35, has spent his entire career in Philly. He was still very effective in 2022 as a team captain. Many still regard Kelce as one of, if not the best, centers in all of football.

It makes total sense for Kelce to want to stay put in Philadelphia, where he has spent his whole career. He’s racked up six Pro Bowls, five All-Pros and a Super Bowl Ring in 2017. The future Hall of Famer is coming off a career season in Philadelphia. He was a main cog in the machine that was the 2022 Eagles. His Eagles fell just short on the big stage to his brother Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman was so hyped up to retain Kelce for the 2023 season, the two even took a shot together. You can see the excitement on Roseman’s face as if he was a kid in a candy shop.

Roseman has every right to feel this way. Kelce has been the equivalent of a golden goose these last few years, a leader who teammates respect and young players revolve around.

The center has been publicly contemplating retirement, especially on his new podcast show New Heights with Travis and Jason Kelce. The show, simply put, is Travis and Jason Kelce, two NFL All-Pros, and brothers, talking about everything from Super Bowls to partying and even their childhood.

Reporters asked Kelce if he would retire after the Super Bowl. Kelce, like always, was realistic.

“It’s getting harder every year,” Kelce said at his locker after Super Bowl LVII. “I’m nowhere near the player I used to be. Jalen Hurts makes all of us look a lot better and makes my job a lot easier. It’s only going to go [downhill], and whether you can be accountable to your teammates and perform at that level and mentally you have the energy to be the difference maker that I feel I am in that regard, all that stuff will factor in.”

Kelce can’t officially re-sign with the team until Wednesday when the league’s new year begins.
