Jason Kelce will reflect on his future

Jason Kelce will consider his future


Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce will take a few weeks of reflection after the Super Bowl to decide if he wants to play another season in the NFL. 

According to information from the ESPN network, it is possible that number 62 will hang up his cleats after the prestigious meeting. 

Whoever plays in the center position will make a final decision before the start of the next campaign.

“I know [retirement] is coming,” he said. It's getting closer and closer every day. I'm just trying to enjoy this moment now and attack it when it happens,” Kelce said last week during a media availability.

Last year, the former Bearcats from the University of Cincinnati had considered ending his career. However, he had signed a season-long pact worth $14 million.

Kelce stressed that he was not going to make his decision based on the result of the most important game of the year.

“I don't think winning this game will determine whether I want to continue playing football or not,” he added.

If ever Travis' brother decides to retire from competition, the Eagles have enough options to replace the highest earner in the NFL at center.

In addition to the two first-round picks they have in the bank for the next draft, Philadelphia is betting on a promising young player in this position whom they drafted in the second round last year, namely Cam Jurgens.

In 12 full seasons with the City of Brotherly Love team, Kelce was named to the Goodell Tour First Team All-Star five times.
