Get ready, football fans! ESPN’s ‘Monday Night Countdown’ is taking on a new vibe with the addition of a familiar face.

Kelce’s appointment as an analyst on ESPN’s ‘Monday NFL Countdown’ has sparked excitement among fans and industry insiders alike. Reportedly, every NFL rightsholder, with the exception of Fox Sports, considered bringing Kelce on board to offer his insights and expertise.

Hosting the show alongside Scott Van Pelt, Kelce will be in good company with fellow analysts Ryan Clark and Marcus Spears. This dynamic lineup is sure to provide viewers with engaging commentary and in-depth analysis of the upcoming games.

The news of Kelce’s new role comes as The Athletic’s Andrew Marchand revealed that Robert Griffin III is not expected to return to the pregame show for the upcoming season, paving the way for Kelce to make his mark on the program.

Kelce, a seven-time Pro Bowler and key player in the Eagles’ Super Bowl championship in 2018, brings a wealth of experience and insider knowledge to the show.

In a recent interview on the ‘New Heights’ podcast, which he co-hosts with his brother Travis Kelce, star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jason Kelce opened up about his decision to retire. Citing physical wear and tear as a significant factor, Kelce expressed his confidence in stepping away from the game at the right time.

Reflecting on his decision, Kelce shared, ‘The reality was, it was more firm than it’s ever been this year that I don’t think physically I can compete at the level that I want to anymore and really compete the way I want to. My elbow and my knees. It’s just gotten to the point where the deterioration and the recovery and that deterioration really hasn’t manifested on game day yet.’

For fans eager to catch Kelce’s debut as an analyst and hear his unique insights on ‘Monday Night Countdown,’ the upcoming season promises to deliver a fresh and exciting perspective on the NFL. Stay tuned for Kelce’s expert analysis and engaging commentary as he transitions from the field to the studio, reshaping the way we experience ‘Monday Night Football’.
