Jason Kelce Announces Retirement and Gives the City of Philadelphia a Heart Attack
This morning, Eagles Center Jason Kelce announced his retirement…
Until now I haven’t address my future because I have been mulling it over for some time this offseason. I wanted to allow my body and mind to fully recover from the rigors of an NFL season, and take time with my family to see what lies ahead. After thinking long and hard about this I have come to a decision. I have decided to RETIRE… from arm wrestling. I leave behind a 2-0 record, one win against this man, and the other being against @28cgiroux and want to go out on top. It was a good run, but my drunken arm wrestling days are behind me, and it’s better to move on to a more mature future. I thank everyone along the way that has made this possible! Especially @brickandbrew for cutting me off after this debacle (which was completely warranted, love you guys) and getting me to sleep. Despite this retirement, I am fully excited for the 2020 season and will be out there with my teammates, coaches and hopefully fans this coming season. Enough media members and fans have reached out if I am playing next season, and I just wanted to make an announcement so I can stop getting asked. Can’t wait to be out there this season, can’t wait to have sports back, and I can’t wait till this lockdown is over. #GoEagles
Jason Kelce will no longer be arm wrestling and has officially retired from the sport with a perfect 2-0 record after beating some Delco guy and Flyers Captain Claude Giroux.
Perfect troll job by Kelce with the post. I almost had a heart attack reading over it this morning. Also confirmed in the post is that Kelce will be back for yet another season with the Eagles – putting to rest the typical “is he going to retire” narrative that has surrounded Kelce over the last few seasons.
The Eagles should, however, start looking at a replacement at center in the draft – the main one being Michigan Center Cesar Ruiz.
