On Monday, New Heights – the podcast that Jason co-hosts with his younger brother and Kansas City Chiefs star, Travis Kelce – shared a snap of the colorful work of art in Havertown on X

It included a thank you message to the 36-year-old, 2018 Super Bowl (LII) champion.

The mural was made by artist Jimmy McMenamim, who owns graffiti art company Glossblack. He previously provided wall art for the Eagles and the likes of the 76ers, of the NBA, Disney and Red Bull in the City of Brotherly Love.

Jason, who spent 13 NFL seasons with the Eagles, retired from the NFL in March.

In April, it was announced that the former seven-time Pro Bowl selection would join ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown.

He also participated in WrestleMania XL with former Eagle teammate Lane Johnson wearing luchador masks, as they helped Rey Mysterio and Andrade win their match.

The event was held in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field – home of the Eagles.
