Shaq’s advice to Jason Kelce on retirement

During the last season, Jason Kelce announced his retirement from the NFL. Kelce began his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 after getting picked in the draft. After 13 long seasons, he has taken a leave from the sport. Looking at his retirement, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal gives him advice.

Shaq’s advice to Jason Kelce:

“Enjoy your family, brother. I lost my family, and I didn’t have anybody. I am in a 1,00,000-square-foot house by myself.”

Shaq also mentioned:

“I made a lot of dumb*** mistakes, to where I lost my family and I didn’t have anybody. That’s not the case for you. So, enjoy your beautiful family. Spend time with your beautiful wife and kids.”

Kelce retired from the sports as one of the best centers in the league’s history. He has made seven Pro Bowl appearances, was part of six NFL First All-Pro teams, and won the Super Bowl LII.

One of the most interesting facts about his NFL career is that he has always started in every game he has played. Also, in his NFL career of 13 long seasons, he rarely missed a game for the Eagles unless he was injured.
