Jason and Travis Kelce were seen sharing an emotional hug after the Eagles star paid a heartbreaking tribute to his younger brother in his retirement speech.

After 13 seasons in the NFL, during which he won a Super Bowl in Philadelphia and earned six first-team All-Pro nods, the 36-year-old Eagles center ended his career on Monday.

As emotional and tearful as he was in front of reporters during a press conference held by the Eagles, Jason said of the Chiefs tight end, to whom he lost in Super Bowl LVII last year: “This is where everything will go off the rails.” . I won’t forget the failure against the Chiefs and the contradictory feeling of men’s anguish I selfishly had for myself and my teammates.

“And at the same time, the pride I had for my brother,” he further noted, adding, “We have a small family.” No cousins. An aunt and an uncle. It really was my brother and I our whole lives.

‘We did almost everything together. Competing, fighting, laughing, crying and learning from each other. We invent games, we imagine ourselves as the star players of that time. We imagine making winning plays, day in and day out, on Coolridge Road. We won countless Super Bowls in our minds before we left home.โ€

Jason said in his retirement speech that he “won’t forget” the loss to Travis and the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII last year.

Growing up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Jason recalled the impact his little brother had early in his career, noting that without his support, he would not be considered one of the best centers in NFL history. Travis shed a tear as his older brother announced his retirement.

Jason further said of his bond with his ‘little’ brother, “And when we weren’t playing, we were at each other’s games.” Butt sat on a long chair or bench, a Capri Sun in our hands that Mom had packed, cheering during the game and waiting outside and after to celebrate together a victory Or offer encouragement after a loss.

‘There’s no chance I’d be here without the bond Travis and I share. He made me stronger, tougher, smarter and taught me the values โ€‹โ€‹of cooperation, loyalty and understanding.’

Outside of football, Jason and Travis remain as close as ever, and co-host the New Heights podcast, where they discuss their playing careers as well as each other’s games.

On Saturday, the Kelce brothers were honored with a bobblehead gift at the Cleveland Cavaliers-Boston Celtics game. The two brothers have always had an affinity for their hometown despite having taken their careers elsewhere.

Jason was a sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati in the 2011 draft. Big, bushy-haired and bearded, Kelce has been a stalwart of the offensive line since he was drafted and like Iron Man after missing the major part of the 2012 season due to a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament and the anterior cruciate ligament.

He then played 193 regular season games for the Eagles, making 156 consecutive starts.
