The Philadephia Eagles just suffered a string of major losses.
First, it was the Vince Lombardi trophy for their loss in Super Bowl LVII.
Then, it was their top two assistants, Shane Steichen and Jonathan Gannon, both leaving to become Head Coaches for the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals, respectively.
That’s why they cannot afford to lose another crucial piece of their recent success, as superstar Center Jason Kelce continues to weigh in on his NFL future.
The All-Pro C is reportedly considering retiring after 12 seasons with the organization, but a recent report by NFL insider Field Yates might as well appease worried Eagles fans.
According to Yates, the Eagles just paid Kelce $3 Million — a 2023 roster bonus and an offseason bonus, hinting at the possibility that he might be back with the team for at least another season.
While Eagles C Jason Kelce continues to weigh his future, the team paid him a $3M bonus yesterday (the $2.75M roster bonus he was due in 2023 + $250K offseason bonus he was due in 2023).
The cap impact for now is Philly creates $2.4M in 2023 cap space.

Of course, Kelce has become a stalwart of the Eagles organization, so there’s also a chance that they just want to do right by him and thank him for all the hard work, unlike what happened with Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions when he decided to retire.
Kelce has done more than enough merits to be considered the greatest Center in NFL history, or at least a top-five player in that position.
He anchored the league’s finest Offensive Line this season and helped the Eagles win its first and only Super Bowl title five years ago.
So, even if this is goodbye, there’s not much more you could ask from a player.
