Eagles All-Pro center Jason Kelce to return for 13th season

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro center Jason Kelce announced on social media he’ll be returning to the Eagles for another season, ending all rumors that he would be retiring. Kelce said on Twitter: “I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season. After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t f—ing done yet!”

The 35-year-old Kelce has five first-team All-Pro selections at center, all of which have came in the past six years. Kelce allowed zero sacks on 619 pass block snaps and his 1.3% pressure rate allowed was the third lowest in the NFL.

The elder of the Kelce brothers is one of just eight centers to earn five First Team All-Pro selections, and the previous seven each have made the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Kelce is one of five players in Eagles history to earn at least First Team All-Pro honors five times, along with Chuck Bednarik, Reggie White, Pete Pihos and Steve Van Buren.
