Sources -- Eagles extend Kelce for 1 year, $11M

At the end of the 2018-19 season, Eagles' fans grew concerned when center Jason Kelce made comments about retirement. Well, you can stop worrying, the Eagles locked up the veteran to a one-year contract extension through 2021. A two-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro, Kelce has played in the 4th-most games (110) by a center in team history, trailing only Chuck Bednarik (169, 1949-62), Guy Morriss (158, 1973-83) and David Alexander (124, 1987-94) per Jon Gonoude of Eagles public relations. It also makes him the highest-paid center in the National Football League in terms of average salary per season, with the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reporting Kelce will make $11 million per year on the extension.

National Football League officially sets 2019 salary cap at $188.2 million
In the metric that counts most for the league - revenue - business is booming, as evidenced by the league's new salary cap. They can free up about $22 million by cutting Michael Brockers, Mark Barron and John Sullivan if they want, as well.

Being a sixth-round draft pick, I didn't have expectations, really. "I love being part of this organization". "I've always taken this one year at a time". I was just like, 'Let's go to work and see how everything turns out.' It's pretty insane when you look back at things to realize that you're going on Year 9 and on your third contract in the NFL.
