Report about Jason Kelce retiring after season is ‘inaccurate’
A report about Jason Kelce retiring after the season is said to be inaccurate.
Early Saturday, ESPN 610 radio host Al Thompson said Kelce would “likely retire” at the end of this season.
A non NFL source with ties to his family informs that at the end of this playoff run, Eagles Pro Center Jason Kelce will likely retire. Since the 2011 sixth round pic out of Cincinnati is healthy, it's unknown if it's for a job in the media or another opportunity. Kelce is 31. pic.twitter.com/sncqh5oX2y

Eagles reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks shot down that report, saying he has heard it is “inaccurate.”
