The Philadelphia Eagles got some good news to start the week of free agency.
They will not have to be in the market for a new center.

This is the news that all Eagles fans wanted to hear.
Even though Kelce will be entering his age-36 season, he is still one of the best centers in the NFL.
He was a big reason for the Eagles’ success on the ground this past year.
You can expect that they will run behind him plenty more in 2023.
Many Eagles fans made sure to tell Kelce how they felt about him returning.

Kelce will be headed to the Hall of Fame after he retires.
But, he still feels like he has more to give to the game.
He has started every game in the last eight seasons and has made first-team All-Pro in five of them.
Another year of qb sneaks lol 😂

It would have been a mistake for Kelce to retire while he was still at the peak of his powers.
The Eagles had the best offensive line in the NFL last season.
That should once again be the case with Kelce back at center.
