Travis Kelce may have helped Jason Kelce win another Super Bowl ring

The Chiefs' superstar tight end said something that really resonated with his All-Pro brother.

One of the top storylines entering Super Bowl LVII was the face-off between the brotherly duo of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce. 

Both players are arguably the best at their respective positions and are future Hall of Famers so, it was a compelling matchup even though they weren't going up against each other in a direct fashion.

Obviously, only one of the brothers came away victorious, which left the other one, you know, the Eagles' star, with a big decision to make.

To retire, or not retire? That's what was on Jason Kelce's mind in the coming days. 

Kelce decided to keep playing and made the announcement on Monday, the first day of the legal tampering period. It was a huge development for the Eagles - one so big it prompted Eagles general manager Howie Roseman to record Kelce and himself doing a shot of tequila in celebration.

As it turns out, Travis Kelce had a major influence on his brother's decision to keep playing. 

"It's funny you say that because, you know, before the Super Bowl, I got asked that question by media members: 'If you win, and you're done, is this gonna impact your decision?' Jason Kelce said Wednesday on The Rich Eisen Show. "And at the time, I said, no, and I'd like to think that won't impact it, because I don't think it should.

"But it does, I think. I don't know what would have happened if we would have won, but my brother said something before we even started the season. He said... 'You know, losing a Super Bowl, I've won one and I've lost one, but losing a Super Bowl, man, you've never wanted to win one that much more.' And at the time, I'm like, 'That's a great, he's just saying something to the fans that are there in attendance. Like it sounds good. And, you know, just acting like he's really motivated to win a Super Bowl.'

"And then I lost the Super Bowl and I realized, 'Okay, it is heartbreaking to go that far with a really good team and all these guys and to be that close and not get it done.' It's it is a difficult thing to cope with, and I'll probably always be coping with that.

"But, we had a, we had a great year, [and we were] a special group, and this whole time making this decision, I've tried to remind myself, you know, we got there last year [and] we're gonna have a great team next year. I fully believe that as long as Jalen Hurts is the quarterback, I think Philadelphia is in great hands and will be perennial contenders for that award."

Jason Kelce's not wrong when he talks about the Eagles as perennial contenders. The team has had a solid offseason, thus far, and still has two first-round draft picks, including the 10th overall pick, to help bolster the roster.

Meaning, the Eagles have a legit shot to contend for a Super Bowl in 2023. Which, in return, Jason Kelce has a legit shot to win a second Super Bowl. That would be icing on the cake for one of the best NFL careers in the past decade.

But most importantly, Travis wouldn't have ultimate bragging rights over his brother. 

Until Unless the Chiefs win another Super Bowl, of course.
