Could this be the final run for Jason Kelce with the Philadelphia Eagles or can we expect another run during the 2023-2024 NFL season?

We hate to break the news to you, but at some point, Jason Kelce will hang up the cleats. That will be a sad day for Philadelphia Eagles Nation, one where you see some tears shed. It’s a fact of life though, one we’ve admittedly tried to prepare ourselves for.

One of the most beloved Birds of all time, along with Brian Dawkins, it appears that, recently, Jason is spending more time contemplating his mortality. At the end of every regular season, we see the emotion. It’s almost as if he knows he’s played his last game. Then, a few weeks later, he announces his return… thankfully.

Every offseason, one of the top stories about this roster surrounds Jason Kelce’s decision. No one plays the game forever, even though it feels like he would be the one guy that could do so. Still, with that being said, it’s hard to label him as one of Philly’s impending 2023 free agents even though he is… technically.

The truth is Jason has earned the right to go out on his own terms. He’ll be a part of this franchise until he determines that he’s ready to move on, so yeah, he’s among a group of nearly 30 impending free agents who will see their current deal with the  Eagles end next March, but he has an asterisk next to his name. That isn’t the case for everyone though.

Training camp approaches, and one of the bigger stories we’ll discuss all season will revolve around Philly’s roster, not just the current version but what this team is expected to look like in years to come. Decisions won’t need to be made immediately, but here’s an initial look at 20 players we’ll be discussing quite often as the weeks progress. Howie Roseman has a lot of work to do.
