Jason Kelce Eyes Eagles Ownership, Willing to Forego TV Deal

Philadelphia Eagles icon Jason Kelce is eyeing a return to the franchise, but this time, it could come at a significant financial cost.


Set to kick off a broadcasting career with ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown” this season, Kelce revealed on the “New Heights” podcast, which he hosts with his brother Travis, the one scenario that could make him abandon his TV aspirations. “Listen, I’ll back out of the TV deal right now if you tell me I could own the Philadelphia Eagles,” Jason declared.

This conversation followed a Bloomberg report from last week indicating that Jeffrey Lurie was considering selling a minority stake in the team, potentially valuing the franchise at over $7.5 billion. Although the exact portion for sale wasn’t specified, it wouldn't grant majority control.

Jason acknowledged that neither he nor Travis could afford even a minority stake, but he expressed that owning the team would be “another level.” Jason retired in March after a remarkable 13-season career, one that is likely to earn him a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In May, ESPN announced that Kelce had signed a “multi-year” contract to join as an analyst. He is also slated to contribute to the coverage of Super Bowl LXI in Los Angeles, scheduled for February 2027.
