Travis Kelce is one supportive little brother.
On the latest episode of New Heights, he and Jason Kelce opened up about the Eagles center breaking a number of records with his latest Pro Bowl announcement, starting with a since-deleted tweet from NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Reuben Frank that Travis called “maybe the darkest…stat of all time,” which compared Jason to former NFL player Jim Tyrer, who killed his wife and himself in 1980.
Frank started by sharing that Kelce has become the 23rd offensive lineman in NFL history to make 1st Team All Pro at least five times and the Pro Bowl at least 7 times.
21 of those 23 are eligible for the Hall of Fame as a result, but two players have never been selected (thus far): Kelce and Tyrer, the latter of whom never will be selected.
It was a bizarre correlation to make, which may be what led him to delete the tweet, but Jason wasn’t bothered by it, calling it “a fine tweet” considering it was “a legitimate thing that happened.”
But, according to Travis, there’s a much better post out there thanks to the Eagles, who posted a “30-minute highlight video of why Jason Kelce transcended the game of football and how you should undoubtedly be in the Hall of Fame.”
Travis said the video was so “unbelievable” that “[he] cried.”
He laughed, adding, “[And] there isn’t even a moment where you should be crying.”
That’s not to mention Travis’ own shattered records and being selected for his ninth consecutive Pro Bowl, which is the third most of any tight end in NFL history. Talk about an impressive family!
