Another day, another contract extension. After yesterday’s extension of Brandon Graham, today the Eagles announced they extended Jason Kelce’s contract.

Before this extension, Jason Kelce had no guaranteed money left in his contract. The Eagles decided to make him the highest paid center in the NFL, but will get some cap relief for the 2019 season.
#Eagles deal with Kelce is 3-year deal, 1-year extension, valued at $11m per season, source said. It makes him the highest paid center in the NFL.

Jason Kelce says new deal clears up some cap space, giving Eagles additional flexibility to build on/maintain the roster.

Kelce has played in 110 games with the Eagles, which is tied for the 57th most in team history. If he ends up playing out the entirety of his contract and is able to play every game, he will tie Guy Morriss (158) for the 9th-most games played for the Birds.
