JJ Watt Reveals His Retirement Advice to Jason Kelce About ‘Vicariously’ Living the NFL Through Brother Travis Kelce

Jason Kelce and JJ Watt entered the NFL together in 2011. Back in the days when their teams faced each other, Watt revealed that Kelce was “frustrating to play against.” After the former defensive end retired in 2022, he joined CBS as an NFL analyst. Looks like Jason Kelce also might be taking Watt’s path soon. In a candid interview with DailyMail, J.J. Watt opened up about his recent conversation with Jason Kelce regarding his transition into retirement from the NFLFollowing Kelce’s retirement announcement after a remarkable 13-season tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles, Watt disclosed that he and Kelce delved into the array of options available to the retired NFL star. Watt said, “He’s an extremely talented man. He’s got a ton of different options on the table. We just spoke a couple of days ago, about some of the options and things that he’s got going.”

The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year also talked about how he misses the dopamine of being in the game. He later found an alternative way to enjoy it, as he invested in the Premier League soccer team, Burnley. Watt said, “I don’t think that you’ll ever truly be able to recreate the highs and the lows of participating in sport… The amount of adrenaline… Being a part of the ownership group with Burnley in the Premier League has been huge because I get that high and low every week… And then I get it from watching my brother [TJ on the Steelers]. Obviously, it’s so much fun to watch him play…”

While Kelce may miss the adrenaline of game day, Watt assured that there are other avenues to replicate that rush. He said, “Yeah, I think Jason’s at an advantage… He’s gonna be able to watch his brother [Travis] play. He’s gonna be able to go to more of his brother’s games and he’s gonna be able to live vicariously through him. So that definitely helps to still be attached to the game in that way.” Lately, the older Kelce has been spotted cheering for the younger Kelce more often.
