Eagles C Jason Kelce confirms he's returning for 2020
Jason Kelce affirmed what most expected to see in 2020: The center will be in an Eagles uniform.
The veteran confirmed that plan via Instagram Thursday with a humorous post, saying he’ll be back to play football to start the decade, but he’ll be giving up arm wrestling.
"After thinking long and hard about this I have come to a decision," Kelce wrote on Instagram. "I have decided to RETIRE… from arm wrestling.
"Despite this retirement, I am fully excited for the 2020 season and will be out there with my teammates, coaches and hopefully fans this coming season."
Kelce retires from arm wrestling with a self-reported 2-0 mark, touting wins over a stranger pictured in the post and Philadelphia Flyers skater Claude Giroux in an announcement that may have been a little…Over The Top.
Until now I haven’t address my future because I have been mulling it over for some time this offseason. I wanted to allow my body and mind to fully recover from the rigors of an NFL season, and take time with my family to see what lies ahead. After thinking long and hard about this I have come to a decision. I have decided to RETIRE… from arm wrestling. I leave behind a 2-0 record, one win against this man, and the other being against @28cgiroux and want to go out on top. It was a good run, but my drunken arm wrestling days are behind me, and it’s better to move on to a more mature future. I thank everyone along the way that has made this possible! Especially @brickandbrew for cutting me off after this debacle (which was completely warranted, love you guys) and getting me to sleep. Despite this retirement, I am fully excited for the 2020 season and will be out there with my teammates, coaches and hopefully fans this coming season. Enough media members and fans have reached out if I am playing next season, and I just wanted to make an announcement so I can stop getting asked. Can’t wait to be out there this season, can’t wait to have sports back, and I can’t wait till this lockdown is over. #GoEagles
