Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce said the outcome of Super Bowl LVII won't dictate whether he returns to the NFL in 2023.

"I don't think so," Kelce said when asked if the game's result will decide his future, according to Dave Zangaro of NBCS Philadelphia.

Kelce flirted with retirement last offseason but decided to return to Philadelphia on a one-year, $14-million deal.

The 35-year-old is playing some of the best football of his career while anchoring one of the top offensive lines in the NFL.

"From everybody I've been told about when it's time to retire or not, you just know when you know," Kelce said. "And it's just going to be when you don't want to play football anymore. And I don't think winning this game is going to determine whether I want to play football or not."

The Eagles selected center Cam Jurgens in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, and he was widely regarded as Kelce's potential replacement. But it will be hard to move on from Kelce after his performance this season if he wants to return.

Selected by the Eagles in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Kelce is a five-time first-team All-Pro with six Pro Bowl selections.
