However, his older brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, didn’t get past the Wild Card round. Following the Eagles’ 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the six-time All-Pro center told his teammates he was retiring.

One day later, Jason refuted the report on the later episode of the Kelce brother’s “New Heights” podcast. “I just don’t think you’re in a position after a game like that to really, you know, make that decision.”

 

 

“I just don’t,” Jason said. “There’s too much emotion in the moment. There’s too much going down in the moment to really fully grasp that decision.”

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Chiefs’ showdown against the Buffalo Bills, Kelce was asked about his brother’s decision process. According to the All-Pro tight end, Jason likely isn’t ready to hang up his cleats just yet.
“It came that he retired, and he didn’t really say any of that,” Kelce said.

“At the end of the game, I think everyone kind of felt for him knowing that he has been thinking about that a lot over the past couple of years.

 

 

“It’s been cool to see everyone appreciate who he’s been over the years this past week. But I think the big guy’s still got some years left if he wants it.”

Based on how emotional Jason was on the podcast, most fans assumed the veteran would soon announce he was not returning for what would be his 14th season in the NFL. However, if anyone has the best insight into what Jason is thinking, it’s his best friend and younger brother.
