Following the Philadelphia Eagles playoff elimination, Jason Kelce is contemplating traveling to watch his brother, Travis Kelce, in the Kansas City Chiefs playoff game this weekend.

Jason, who is a center for the Eagles, is the older brother to Travis, a tight end on the Chiefs. The Eagles made it to the NFL playoffs, however, they were eliminated when they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Travis, however, is still in Super Bowl contention as he and the Chiefs beat the Miami Dolphins.

The Chiefs are now getting ready to travel to New York to take on Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills -- and Travis may have the support of his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, and his brother, Jason.

Travis Kelce Reveals The Reason Behind Wearing Number 87

The Eagles were clearing out their locker room Wednesday following the devastating loss last weekend, which is when reporters caught up with Jason Kelce. When asked if he had any immediate plans following the loss, Jason said, “I don’t know, that’s one of the beautiful things about the off-season, it’s unscheduled.”

He added, “So, you know, obviously my brother’s still in the playoffs. I don’t get to watch him play very often, maybe I’ll get an opportunity to go watch one of those games this week.”

One thing he is certain of is he and his family will be taking a trip to Orlando, Florida as he was selected to participate in the Pro Bowl.

“It’s down in Orlando, so I get to take my kids and maybe go to Walt Disney World [but] it’s not the Super Bowl Walt Disney World,” he said, adding that his three daughters love the movie 'Frozen', so they will have to pay a tribute to meet Queen Elsa.

“As long as Wyatt gets to see Elsa, that’s all that really matters," Jason said.

After the Eagles lost in the playoff game last weekend, rumors began circulating that Jason Kelce plans to retire after this season ends.

Days after the rumors began, the NFL player addressed the possible retirement when on his podcast with his brother. “I just don’t think you’re in a position after a game like that to really, you know, make that decision. I just don’t," The Eagles center said of the emotional game.

“There’s too much emotion in the moment. There’s too much going down in the moment to really fully grasp that decision,” he added on his podcast. “I’m not trying to be dramatic to continue to draw this thing out,” he continued. “I’m really not.”

He did admit to addressing the team, telling listeners, "and pretty much said, 'I [believe] in every single one of you guys’. Cherish your moments in this league.’ ”

“That’s kind of the way it went down. A lot of guys [said], ‘If that’s your last game, I feel sorry for you.’ Don’t feel sorry for me for me m———-,” he added.  "Either way, I truly appreciated everybody in that room, and I’d go to war with them any day of the week… Enjoy the time you got.”

It is unclear if Jason Kelce will be retiring after this season, but in the meantime, he will be cheering on his brother and the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs.
