Jason Kelce has reportedly begun plotting a potential career in broadcasting, as he’s been ‘making the rounds’ with various networks this week in Las Vegas.
Kelce, who is in Sin City to watch his brother Travis compete in the Super Bowl with the Chiefs, could announce his retirement after the conclusion of this season.
And according to Front Office Sports, the Eagles center is already preparing for his possible next chapter, as he’s met with Fox and ESPN executives in Vegas.
The article also states that Amazon, NBC and CBS would pursue Kelce, 36, if and when he commits his future to broadcasting. Kelce appeared on Amazon Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football broadcast during the Eagles’ bye week this season.
Nonetheless, the discussions with Fox and ESPN were described as a preliminary ‘testing of the water.’

The report from FOS comes not long after The Sun reported that there is already a ‘scramble’ among several broadcasters to win his services, which could reportedly land him about $5million per year.
‘When you see him talking in his podcast, you see someone very good at talking in a microphone and being very straightforward about his opinions,’ a source told The Sun.
‘He has millions of great stories to tell as he has played with many, many players and worked with tons of staff in his long career.’

Jason’s season has been over since the Eagles lost to the Bucs in the first round of the playoffs.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he told his teammates he was retiring after that game, though he has yet to publicly confirm his decision.
The center was still at the top of his game in 2023, earning a first-team All-Pro nod for the sixth time.
Recently, however, he’s been a proud supporter of his brother, attending the Chiefs’ last two games in Buffalo and Baltimore.
He’ll be in attendance once again at Allegiant Stadium, and is expected to sit with Taylor Swift’s family in a suite that Travis paid ‘well over $1million’ for.
