Jason was drafted by the Eagles in the 2011 NFL Draft. But Travis came two years later, being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013. And while Travis continues to play on, Jason has stepped down, making his retirement official via a press conference. Hours before announcing his retirement, he took to X (formerly Twitter) and wrote, “No Keg videos this year, I have come to a decision and will address it at a press conference this afternoon.”

This was a reference to his previous retirement announcement in 2023 that took place on the radio. It sent his fans into a frenzy. But the older Kelce kept his promise, and no kegs were used during his official announcement. Now, in the wake of his retirement, let us also look at Jason Kelce’s endorsement deals.
