The party in Philly continues.
The 76ers are dominating. The Phillies just got Bryce Harper. And the Eagles are keeping the band together as best they can. Although Nick Foles won't be back next year, the team still has gunslinger Carson Wentz and one of his trusty offensive lineman will be returning.
Philly has reportedly reached a contract extension with center Jason Kelce despite rumors that he was considering retirement this offseason.
This is exciting news for the Eagles offense considered there are some question marks along the O-line. Between Jason Peters' durability and finding more playing time for Halapoulivaati Vaitai, the last thing the Eagles needed was for an influential and experience veteran like Kelce to hang up the cleats.
What a relief too, because he sounds thrilled to be at peace with his decision and to hopefully spend the next three seasons in Philadelphia.
And we're sure the favorable deal he signed helped, too.
Jason Kelce’s extension with the #Eagles is worth $11M per season and in terms of average per year makes him the highest-paid center in the NFL, per league source.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) March 2, 2019
