Is Jason Kelce planning on one more year of playing football?
The Eagles star offensive lineman has given indications that he may continue playing in the NFL, as fans at the Pro Bowl pleaded with him not to retire. In a video where he was signing autographs, a fan urged him not to retire, to which Kelce responded, “I’m gunna try not to.”
While reports initially suggested his retirement after the Eagles’ playoff loss, Kelce hasn’t officially confirmed his decision.
After the AFC Championship game, he expressed the difficulty of leaving the game, citing its physical demands.
Jason Kelce, a father of three, seriously contemplated retirement after last season, which ended with the Eagles losing in the Super Bowl. This internal struggle was documented in a popular Amazon Prime series.
After the recent playoff loss to the Bucs, Kelce shared emotional moments on the field. He hugged offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland as the clock ran out and had a brief but touching reunion with his family, including his father Ed and wife Kylie, who were cheering from the front row of the stands.
Despite contemplating retirement last season, Kelce, a six-time first-team All-Pro, remains a top-performing player.
If he decides to retire, broadcasting opportunities await him.
