Pro Bowl center Jason Kelce has a ton of good news to share with Philadelphia Eagles fans.

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce sent out a super positive Instagram post on Friday.

Kelce revealed an abundance of great news in his social media post. He said that he welcomed his second child into the world, a baby girl named Elliotte Ray. Kelce mentioned he got his first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Oh yeah, he also stated that he restructured his contract with the Eagles to remain the starting center for the Birds. The 10-year NFL pro is not going anywhere, Philadelphia!

Jason Kelce will be a veteran leader in a new era of Philadelphia Eagles football

Kelce has been through all the highs and lows while in Eagles uniform. His rookie season out of Philadelphia was the ill-fated 2011 “Dream Team” that went absolutely nowhere. He was there for Andy Reid’s final season leading the Birds in 2012. Kelce was there for the entireties of the Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson eras. Now, he will be playing for a fourth head coach in Nick Sirianni.

All the while, Kelce has been a four-time Pro Bowler and a three-time First-Team All-Pro. Though not a Pro Football Hall of Fame lock like his younger brother, Travis Kelce, he too is a Super Bowl champion. Though Kelce is on the wrong side of 30, the 33-year-old center seems to be in great spirits with an extremely promising 2021 ahead of him. He is the perfect leader this team needs.

Having Kelce agree to a restructure will help the Eagles on their quest to get back into the playoffs.

Next. Kyle Long thinks the Bears will make a big move here soon. dark
