After the Super Bowl, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce seriously considered retirement. After a long and successful career, nobody would have blamed him for walking away then. However, he decided to return to the Eagles.
“I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season,” Kelce tweeted. “After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t fucking done yet!”
To celebrate the decision, Philadelphia GM Howie Roseman and Jason Kelce took a shot of mezcal together.
When Roseman pours Kelce his first shot, Jason jokes about how heavy the pour was. That prompted Roseman to joke that they were “doing it by body type,” while giving himself a tiny shot.
Ultimately, Roseman did pour himself a nearly full shot that he took with Kelce. However, he did take noticeably longer to finish than the five-time All-Pro selection.
