Bob Ford: Eagles’ Jason Kelce hears the loud ticking of a season and a career counting down

The only certainty on an NFL roster from one season to the next is that the players must view their seats at the table with varying degrees of uncertainty. A year ago, as the Eagles were rolling toward a high seed in the NFC and a possible championship push, it was accepted that if they were successful, many of the teammates who made it possible would not return to attempt a repeat performance. That played out, of course, and 16 players who were on the 53-man roster for the Super Bowl were gone from the organization when the Eagles came out of the tunnel for the season opener this year.
