Emotional Jason Kelce denies he has decided to retire in tearful podcast with brother Travis

Jason Kelce says he is yet to decide on his future, despite widespread reports he is set to retire.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported that Kelce had informed teammates of his decision to retire following Philadephia’s Wild Card defeat to Tampa Bay.

In the aftermath of the loss, the 36-year-old looked visibly emotional and exchanged heartfelt hugs with friends and family in attendance.

Speaking publicly for the first time since Monday evening, Kelce said he has not made a decision on his NFL future and needs more time after such a heartbreaking end to the season.

Kelce addressed widespread speculation on his possible retirement after 13 seasons in the NFL with his brother Travis on the pair’s popular New Heights podcast.

I didn’t announce what I was doing on purpose, despite what I guess was leaked to the media.”

“People can kind of feel body language and stuff,” Jason admitted on New Heights, explaining that he was holding back on making a firm decision about his career until the Eagles exit interviews for the season are conducted this week.

“I just don’t think you’re in a position after a game like that to really make that decision. I just don’t,” he said

“There’s too much emotion in the moment, there’s too much going down in the moment to really fully grasp that decision.
