Jason Kelce confirmed that he will remain with the Philadelphia Eagles next season. After losing the Super Bowl against Kansas City, the defensive back had left in the air his continuity in the NFL. After overcoming the hard blow of not being able to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy, Kelce announced that he will continue on the field and will seek to be champion in 2023.
“I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season,” Kelce wrote on Twitter. “After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. “Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t f-king done yet!”
Kelce, who was selected by the Eagles in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, has spent his entire career with Philadelphia. The All-Pro center won Super Bowl 2018 with the Eagles.
I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season. After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t fucking done yet!

elce brothers were at Super Bowl LVII
With the Eagles since 2011, Jason Kelce has become a staple of the franchise’s offensive line and one of the most skilled centers in the league. He has played in every game for Philadelphia since 2015. In his career, he has been chosen six times for the Pro Bowl, including the last four seasons, as well as five First Team All-Pro and a Super Bowl LII win.
With the Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs going to the NFL Finals, it was the first time in Super Bowl history that two brothers faced off for the title. In the end, tight end Travis Kelce’s team emerged victorious 38-35.
During the week of the event, Travis and Jason’s parents went through a period of fame and excitement, especially the athletes’ mother, Donna Kelce. The Philadelphia OL commented on the podcast about the thrill it was to meet her after the game.
“The moment I saw mom was when I got really emotional, because man, it was amazing,” Jason Kelce confessed, in tears. “It was amazing for [her] (…) She was on top of the world for a week. (…) It was so cool to see her celebrate with us. It was an incredible moment.”
The number 62 finished: “Ironically, you miss the Super Bowl and you’re crying after the game, and they’re not tears of sadness. They are tears of joy.
