Saquon Barkley wants to unretire Jason Kelce but the Eagles legend has other options

Add ESPN to the G.O.A.T.'s list of suitors. Despite an admirable recruiting attempt by Saquon Barkley, Jason Kelce's playing days are certainly over.

Who would have thought? When Saquon Barkley eventually hangs up the cleats (and hopefully does so having joined the ranks of Philadelphia Eagles legends), he may have a career in recruiting awaiting. Come on, can you imagine having an 18-year-old son and Saquon is on your porch and knocking on the door? We can see it.

The former Penn State star hasn't even been a Bird for a month yet, and he's already hanging out with the G.O.A.T. and trying his hand at trying to woo him out of retirement.

Barkley hung out with Jason and his brother Travis on their highly-popular New Heights show, and he tried his hand at getting one of the most beloved Eagles of all time to unretire. Take a look.

As much as we don't want to admit this, the G.O.A.T. is probably done for good. He's no doubt missing the game already. He's already joked that he may have walked away too early, but he's settled into his next life nicely. We even saw him go full-scale WWE by jumping through a table. Be carfeul Jason. Don't beat yourself up too badly. A career in broadcasting is calling.

Add ESPN to Jason Kelce's list of suitors.

Here's a bold prediction. Jason Kelce's post-football life will be a fruitful one. Even before he retired, we saw him make appearances on NFL Network and Amazon Prime's Thursday Night Football panel. Several TV outlets have already reached out to gauge his interest in a possible television career. We can now add ESPN to the interested parties.

The Athletic's Andrew Marchand reports the worldwide leader in sports is considering the possibility of shaking up their Monday night pregame show again, and they are interested in adding Jason to the fray.

Marchand reports ESPN is "aggressively pursuing". NBC, CBS and Amazon Prime Video appear to have some competition. We repeat... Jason Kelce's post-football life will be a fruitful one.
