Jason Kelce’s Net Worth At Retirement Is Massive—But Did He Make More Than Travis?

As one of the most respected and accomplished centers in the NFL, it’s no surprise that football fans want to know what Jason Kelce’s net worth looks like today. Below, we’re diving into everything we know about the NFL star’s net worth and contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, on November 5, 1987, Jason Kelce has always had football running in his veins. He comes from a family with a strong sports background: his younger brother, Travis Kelce, is a star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, and his father, Ed Kelce, grew up playing football at Cleveland State University. The Kelce brothers were both involved in several sports growing up, from football and basketball to hockey and lacrosse. As a teenager, Jason even extended his interests to music, playing baritone saxophone in his high school jazz band.

After a successful high school football career, where he played both running back and linebacker, Jason Kelce took his talents to Cincinnati. The athlete played college football for the Cincinnati Bearcats, starting as a walk-on running back, before switching to fullback and then finally to the offensive line, moving to center during his senior season. Kelce’s exceptional performance on the field drew the attention of NFL scouts and he was originally projected as a fourth round pick in the NFL Draft.

 

In 2011, Kelce was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, marking the beginning of his professional career. Howie Roseman, executive vice president and general manager of the Eagles, explained why the team chose to draft him during an episode of Kelce’s podcast, “New Heights,” which he hosts with his brother Travis. Despite lacking the typical size of an offensive lineman, Roseman says former coach Howard Mudd wanted to take a chance on Kelce for his athleticism.

What is Jason Kelce’s salary? As of 2023, Jason Kelce is under contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. His current contract is worth $14.5 million per year, making him the highest-paid center in the NFL. It includes a base salary of $1,165,000, a $10,335,000 signing bonus, and $14,250,000 guaranteed overall.

Kelce has consistently been one of the highest-paid centers in the NFL, thanks to his exceptional performance and leadership on the field. When he was originally drafted by the Eagles in 2011, he signed a four-year $2,137,432 contract, which included a $97,432 signing bonus, $97,432 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $534,358, per Spotrac.

He went on to sign a six-year extension worth $37.5 million in 2014. Since 2021, the offensive lineman has signed one-year contract renewals with the Eagles, giving him the flexibility to retire when he feels like the time is right. As one of the NFL’s oldest players, Kelce has toyed with the idea of retirement over the years, but hasn’t been able to throw in the towel yet.

What is Jason Kelce’s net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jason Kelce’s net worth is about $30 million as of 2023. Meanwhile, Travis Kelce’s net worth also sits around $30 million.

Jason Kelce’s net worth includes not only his NFL contracts but also earnings from lucrative endorsement deals that have come his way. Kelce’s appeal and reputation as one of the NFL’s best centers have made him a sought-after figure in the world of endorsements, so it makes sense that he’s able to rake in millions from brand deals alone.

In addition to his work on and off the field, Kelce’s real estate investments have played a pivotal role in growing his wealth. His real estate portfolio includes an expansive eight-acre farm in Pennsylvania and a property in his hometown of Cleveland, adding to his overall net worth.

Who makes more, Travis or Jason Kelce?

While Travis Kelce may be the more famous brother thanks to his position as a star tight end and his relationship with Taylor Swift, it’s worth noting his older sibling, Jason Kelce, has made more money so far during their respective NFL careers.

Jason Kelce’s advantage over his brother is partly due to the fact that he has enjoyed two additional seasons in the league. Over his impressive 13-year NFL journey, Jason has accrued a total earnings of $81,708,745, per Spotrac. The lion’s share of his income stems from his second contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, a lucrative deal that paid him $37.5 million from 2014 to 2020.

In contrast, Travis Kelce has earned $77,032,220 over his 11 seasons in the NFL. Unsurprisingly, his most financially rewarding contract is his current one, which will see him receive $57.2 million over a four-year period, extending until 2026.

Did Jason Kelce retire from the Philadelphia Eagles?
Jason Kelce announced his retirement on March 3, 2024. “I announce that I am retiring from the NFL after 13 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles,” an emotional Kelce said. “Thank you, Philadelphia, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for letting me represent this city and allowing me into your homes every Sunday.”

“I’ve been asked many times why did I choose football — what drew me to the game — and I never have an answer that gets it right,” he said during a press conference where he stopped many times due to overwhelming emotion. “The best way I could explain it is what draws you to your favorite song … your favorite book. It’s what it makes you feel. The seriousness of it. The intensity of it.

“Stepping on the field was the most alive and free I had ever felt. There was a visceral feeling with football, unlike any sport. The hairs on my arms would stand up. I could hit somebody, run around like a crazed lunatic and then get told, ‘Good job.’ I love football.”
