Eagles Star Center Jason Kelce Cries During Presser, Travis Also in Tears During Major

Philadelphia Eagles star Jason Kelce is retiring after 13 seasons with the team, and on Monday he delivered a teary, heartfelt retirement announcement that paid tribute to his father, his wife and kids, saying that being a father is the most important thing a man can do in life.

The elder Kelce brother has been hinting about his pending retirement for some time, but on Monday he confirmed the plans with his morning news conference.

Kelce, 36, has a lot to be proud of. He has always been a solid leader for the Eagles, and he is one of the few players of the National Football League to play his entire 13-year career with the same team.

Born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, in 1987, Jason preceded his brother in pro football after being picked in the sixth round by the Eagles in the 2011 NFL Draft. Travis Kelce, Jason’s younger brother, was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013.

Both brothers played for the Cincinnati Bearcats in college.

Jason little brother, Travis Kelce, was on hand for Jason’s retirement announcement, and at one point he teared up.

Travis was not alone. Jason also broke down at he tried to kick off his comments.

Jason’s retirement announcement was a wonderful example of someone who truly is a real man. He was gracious, well spoken, and heartfelt in his comments upon retirement.

At one point, for instance, Jason explained how important his wife, Kylie Kelce, and their three kids were to him.

He praised his wife as his rock and said his marriage “increasingly brings me more fulfillment off the field than it does on.”

He then quickly segued into his ideals on fatherhood and said that one of the most important things a man can do is be a good father to his children.

“I think one of the best things a person can be in this world is a father. A father who is present, loving, devoted just might be the greatest gift a child could ask for in our society,” Kelce explained.

The famed Eagles player married Kylie Kelce in 2018, and the couple now have three daughters: Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 3, and Bennett, 1.

To underscore his comments, after his address, Kelce walked off the stage and gave his wife a big kiss.

Kelce had a storied career. He won a Super Bowl ring in 2018 when the Eagles beat the New England Patriots for the championship.

He was also a six-time All-Pro First-Team member and a seven-time Pro-Bowl player during his career with the Eagles. Kelce was also a two-time Second-team All-Big East player in college, according to Fox Sports.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
