- Jason's relationship with his brother Travis Kelce will be featured in the E:60 special "Bond of Brothers" Sunday morning.
Eagles fans may know Jason Kelce for his fearless play on the field or for the wild, passionate speech he delivered on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art after the Parade of Champions on February 8.
But on Sunday morning at 9 a.m., they will get to see a more personal side of the All-Pro, two-time Pro Bowl center when the E:60 special "Bond of Brothers" airs on ESPN. The feature profiles the relationship between Kelce and his younger brother, Travis Kelce, a three-time Pro-Bowl and All-Pro tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
"I'm excited," Kelce said Saturday after practice at the NovaCare Complex. "Obviously, it's pretty cool to have a brother in the NFL and to see the journey that both of us took to get there, to see the hard work, to see the good luck and the bad luck along the way, I think it'll be cool to see what he says and how it all comes together."
Kelce said he has not yet seen the piece and with Training Camp continuing Sunday with a 9:15 a.m. practice, he plans to have his wife, Kylie, record the special for them to watch later.
The Kelce brothers were interviewed separately for the feature, beginning last summer and into this spring. It includes footage from the Eagles' game against the Chiefs on September 17, 2017 as well as home videos of the brothers playing together as kids.
"They told me in our interview a couple of things afterwards that he said. It's interesting. I think that it's funny to hear, even though we're both brothers, both of our perceptions of events or things that have happened and what we both individually took from those same events. I think it's always a little bit different," Kelce acknowledged.
"My brother is a one-of-a-kind person and just an outstanding brother and it'll be interesting see what's said."
Jason and Travis, who grew up in Cleveland, played together in college at the University of Cincinnati for three seasons from 2008 to 2010. Both were drafted by head coach Andy Reid, Jason by the Eagles in the sixth round in 2011 and Travis by the Chiefs in the third round two years later, and have spent their entire careers with their respective teams so far.
Jason said he recognizes the rarity of playing with a sibling in the NFL and doesn't take this time for granted.
"It's awesome," Kelce said. "Obviously, we've had a lot of ups and downs along the way and for both of us to be here, both of us to still be doing this, the both of us be doing what we dreamt about as kids, it's pretty special."
