The last week has been a roller coaster ride for Jason Kelce, who has been struggling with the idea of retirement after the Philadelphia Eagles were eliminated from any Playoff chances. Although he has been thinking about retirement over the last couple of years, actually going forward with retirement is a known nearly impossible step to take for most NFL stars. Just a few days after the images that made people feel for Jason Kelce, he appeared on his podcast to break down again but this time getting support from his brother. Travis Kelce is probably the one who understands what his brother is currently going through.
Contrary to what the signs have been so far, Travis Kelce ared to make a statement that makes Eagles fans rejoice for a little bit. This joy will stay at least until Jason Kelce himself makes any type of public statement. This is what Travis dropped during a press conference on Friday: “It came that he retired, and he didn’t really say any of that. At the end of the game, I think everyone kind of felt for him knowing that he has been thinking about that a lot over the past couple of years. It’s been cool to see everyone appreciate who he’s been over the years this past week. But I think the big guy’s still got some years left if he wants it.”
It should be interesting to see what Jason Kelce’s reaction is after this bombed his brother dropped. If there is somebody who knows what he is thinking, that is definitely Travis. We’ll be extremely vigilant to see if the oldest of the Kelce brothers makes any type of announcement in regards to his future. But for now, all we can do is wait and let Jason cool off after a hard-fought season with the Philadelphia Eagles.
