Jason Kelce


Jason Kelce is one of the most dominating and best centers to have ever played in the National Football League (NFL). He played with the Philadelphia Eagles for his entire career of thirteen years. He was an integral part of the Eagles' offense for more than a decade and had a lot of success on the field in his own way. Despite being considered an undersized center, Kelce’s unique athletic ability has helped him overcome the disadvantage of being a smaller offensive lineman.


Known for his athleticism, Kelce also has excellent instincts on the field, great vision, and an explosive jump of the line. Furthermore, his work ethic, natural leadership qualities, and fun-loving personality make him a well-respected teammate.


Off the field, Kelce is a complete family man; a loving son and husband, a caring brother, and a caring father of three beautiful daughters. He has kept himself occupied away from the game by starting a football podcast on YouTube by the name of ‘New Heights’ along with his brother. He also recently released his very own documentary titled ‘Kelce’ on Prime Video.


With retirement on his mind in 2023, Kelce decided to come back for one more year but after the Eagles lost out in the Divisional Round of the playoffs in the 2023 season, he knew his time was up. On March 4, 2024, Kelce held a media conference in which he announced his decision to step away from the game after 13 long and eventful years in the league.


Jason Kelce Brother

Kelce is the older brother of Travis Kelce, who incidentally is also an American football player for the Kansas City Chiefs. The younger Kelce is equally if not more famous than his older brother. Travis Kelce plays the tight end position and has completely revolutionized it with his ability to catch the ball and come up with crucial blocks on run plays.


Travis Kelce, like his brother, was also born in Ohio and went to the same high school (Cleveland Heights High School) and college (University of Cincinnati) as Jason Kelce. Born on October 5, 1989, the now 34-year-old has set numerous NFL records and is considered one of the best at his position alongside other great tight ends of the game.


Do both Kelce brothers have Super Bowl rings?

Both Kelce brothers have Super Bowl rings. While Jason won his only ring in Super Bowl LII, Travis now has three rings with the Chiefs. All in all, the Kelce’s have done well in the NFL individually for sure, but as a family, they now have four rings between them.


Jason won his ring with the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII against the New England Patriots as they won 41-33 in a high-scoring game.


Travis Kelce won his first ring in Super Bowl LIV when the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in a come-from-behind 31-20 victory. The younger Kelce had 6 receptions for 43 yards and 1 touchdown in the big game.


However, the most exciting phase of the brothers’ professional career came in the 2022 NFL season when the pair created history by being the first pair of brothers to play against each other in Super Bowl LVII. Jason Kelce and the Eagles took on Travis Kelce and the Chiefs in an emotional game for the entire Kelce family.


In the end, the Chiefs overcame a halftime deficit to win the game 38-35 handing Travis Kelce his second ring. The Chiefs’ tight end had 6 catches for 81 yards and 1 touchdown.


The younger sibling won his most recent ring in Super Bowl LVIII after the Chiefs once again defeated the 49ers 25-22 in overtime. Kelce for his part had a big game with 9 receptions for 93 yards.

Did Jason Kelce ever find his Super Bowl ring?

The story about Kelce and his Super Bowl ring is a funny one as he has confided many times on his ‘New Heights' podcast as well as the ‘Rich Eisen Show’ that he keeps losing his ring. He has a habit of taking the ring to events and then forgetting about it completely in the bag he is carrying or he will keep it in the glove compartment of his car only to forget it later.


In the end, he ends up finding the ring somewhere in the house or the car.


He has also stated that at times he hides the ring somewhere and then usually ends up not remembering where he kept it.


Jason Kelce Weight

Kelce is about 6’3” and weighs approximately 295 lbs. The dominance of Kelce in the professional football league that is the NFL is quite remarkable considering he is an undersized center. The standard or average height and weight of an NFL center are around 6’4” and 305 lbs.


However, it is interesting to note that when Kelce weighed in at the NFL Combine in 2011, he weighed only 280 lbs. His weight was so light that up until that point, since 2001, there had been only one offensive lineman out of 1200 who weighed less than him. Over the years the Cincinnati native has managed to put on more weight thereby ensuring he can match up well against the defense, but he remains a good ten pounds lighter than the average.
