REPORT: Jason Kelce Will Replace Robert Griffin III On ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown

Jason Kelce will remain in the NFL word when the 2024 season beings.

The legendary Philadelphia Eagles center, who recently retired, will join ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown” as an analyst, the network announced on Tuesday. While terms of Kelce’s deal weren’t disclosed, ESPN revealed it’s a “multi-year agreement.”

“Turns out, it was a short retirement! I’m excited to join ESPN, and particularly the Monday Night Countdown team,” Kelce said in a statement.

“ESPN was a consistent presence in our household growing up and the network helped shape who I am and my love of all sports. To now appear on that same screen is a full circle moment. And, I mean it’s freaking Monday Night Football! and I’m ready for some football.”


Kelce announced his retirement in March after 13 seasons with the Eagles.

In the statement, ESPN noted Kelce will join Scott Van Pelt, Ryan Clark and Marcus Spears. Robert Griffin III, who’d been with the Worldwide Leader since 2021, was not one of the names listed. According to Pro Football Talk, the former NFL quarterback won’t return to the network.

Kelce is the latest former player to step into the role as analyst. Tom Brady will begin his broadcasting career at FOX when the Cleveland Browns host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.
