How do you win a Super Bowl with a backup quarterback? It helps to have what might be the NFL's best pair of offensive linemen blocking for him. Between his on-field performance, his post-game and parade speeches, and his impeccable fashion sense, it's hard to imagine an offensive lineman ever having a higher positive profile than Kelce is enjoying right now. Kelce still only be 31 in 2018, Johnson 27, so it's not unthinkable that we could see a Philly double-dip at the top of these tables again next year.


OK, it was fan voting but who cares.

The problem with Kelce being one of the best O Linemen in the NFL is that he's going to deserve another pay day.

"Kelce didn’t just endear himself to fans with his impassioned speech at the Eagles’ victory parade. He graded out as the top center in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus, and was named the league’s best offensive lineman, period, by Football Outsiders. Analytics aside, Kelce also took home first-team All-Pro honors despite being snubbed for the Pro Bowl."

Well, he was one of the worst in 2016 and we didn't cut his pay so I call it even.

Any adjustments to happen after next season!

part of the point is that they could use the extension to free upcap this year, however due to his age and CW's looming big payday Kicking the can down the road seems unwise. they have a history of taking care of team leaders.

I'd guess that Roseman knows how to manage salaries within the cap better than we do.

These are the same fans that wanted him shipped out of Dodge for the past year and a half. I had so many arguments with people on another board because they blamed all of the O line failures on him, particularly last year. What they fail to realize is that just because the pass rush comes up the middle and is successful doesn't necessarily mean it's the center's fault. These people just don't have the time (or are too lazy) to break down the abundance of film that's available to them to find out what is actually going on during a game. That's why analysis as soon as the game is over can usually be ignored for the most part. It's also the same reason Doug laughed when reporters asked him if Kelce would be cut this year to clear cap space. Unreal.
