Recently retired former Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro center Jason Kelce has officially signed a "multi-year deal" to join ESPN as an NFL analyst, ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter reports.

"ESPN officially has signed former Eagles standout Jason Kelce to a multi-year deal. Kelce will join Monday Night Countdown, leading into Monday Night Football, then appear again at halftime. He will be a part of ESPN and ABC’s coverage of Super Bowl LXI in Los Angeles in 2027," Schefter wrote on his X account.

The Athletic's Andrew Marchand initially reported that Kelce, 36, was expected to join ESPN's Monday Night Football coverage, which the All-Pro center acknowledged during an episode of his New Heights podcast alongside his brother and co-host, Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce released on May 1.

“Nothing has been officially inked yet or announced yet but, obviously, there’s been a lot of reports out there about me going to ESPN and I think time will kind of take care of that but it’s a tremendous honor to even be considered to potentially work there,” Jason said.

Kelce was previously reported to be joining veteran anchor Scott Van Pelt and fellow former NFL players Ryan Clark and Marcus Spears on ESPN's revamped Monday Night Football coverage.

“I did my due diligence, you want to make sure you’re really looking at things, talking to people that are knowledgeable in the industry — neither one of us have ever done something like this. Throughout the whole process, meeting and talking to everyone over at ESPN, it became apparent that it was really the right fit and at the end of the day, something that I’m really, really looking forward to this next phase,” Jason said.

Kelce officially announced his retirement during a press conference on March 4. The Ohio native is one of the most celebrated players in Eagles history, starting at center in all 193 games of his 13-year NFL career, including the franchise's lone Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl LII, while being selected as a first-team All-Pro six times (2017-19, 2021-23) and Pro Bowler seven times (2014, 2016, 2019-23).
