Philadelphia Eagles standout Jason Kelce has yet to make an official announcement regarding his retirement. As a result, speculation about the All-Pro center’s next move continues to draw attention.
Kelce has been in Las Vegas this week to support his brother Travis in the buildup to Super Bowl LVIII.
According to a report from Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, Kelce met with executives from both ESPN and FOX this week to explore the possibility of pursuing a broadcasting career. These discussions are said to be in the early stages and not exclusive to these networks.
Kelce co-hosts the highly successful “New Heights” podcast with his brother Travis. With his comfort behind the microphone and a natural charisma in the public eye, the 36-year-old has shown promise as a potential broadcaster.
Known for his on-field experience, intelligence, and relatable personality, Kelce could excel as a commentator, bridging the gap between the game and the viewers at home.
While Kelce reportedly hinted at retirement to his Eagles teammates following their Wild Card Round loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he has yet to make an official retirement announcement. Travis Kelce even believes that Jason may not be ready to hang up his cleats for good.
However, if Kelce ultimately decides to retire, networks seem poised to offer him opportunities to transition into a new career path.
