Jason Kelce: Much more special to make All-Pro along with my brother

Eagles center Jason Kelce made the All-Pro first team after the 2017 season and his play remained at a high level during the 2018 season, so it was no surprise to see that he was selected for the team again on Friday.

There was something a little different about making it this year, though. Kelce is joined on the offense by his brother Travis as the Chiefs tight end edged George Kittle of the 49ers for the top spot in the Associated Press‘ voting this year.

“For me and my brother to both get it, it’s that much more special because I still remember us in the backyard fighting with each other, playing football growing up and we envisioned each other competing at the highest level, competing against the best players,” Jason said. “And for both of us to be recognized as one of those guys is pretty special.”

The Kelces join Tiki and Ronde Barber and Shannon and Sterling Sharpe as bothers voted to the All-Pro first team in the same year.

  1. @gysot only the second TE ever with three straight 1000 yard seasons, and he broke the all-time yardage record for a TE before kittle broke it himself. you don’t have to like him, but to say he hasn’t accomplished anything just makes you look stupid.

    1-3 with 1 TD in 4 playoff games…Yawn

  3. Pretty clear the best three TEs this year were Kelce, Ertz, and Kittle. Kittle had amazing yards per catch, Ertz had the 116 receptions, and Kelce had over 100 receptions and broke the yardage record before Kittle beat him in garbage time. They’re all good.

  4. @gysot his QB was alex smith and the team barely crossed 10 points for almost all of those playoff losses. now he has mahomes and they’ve put up more points and yards than anyone in the league.

    the irony of you yawning at one of the most talented and exciting players in the league while posting the kind of mindlessly negative nonsense you do is not lost on anyone else reading these comments.

  5. @gysot a couple more stats for you. for all the praise they got last year with alex smith at QB, the chiefs scored touchdowns on 41% of red zone trips, which was 29th in the league. with mahomes this year, they finished the year at 71% – second best in the league.

    kelce scored 12 TDs in his last two years with alex smith, and 10 this year alone. the upgrade at QB was significant.

  6. Jason Kelce deserves all honors. Nobody gets off the line of scrimmage faster than him running to block into the second level. It’s a cool story when two brothers get it the same year like Tiki and Ronde did.
