Jason Kelce has revealed one thing in particular that his dad, Ed, banned his brother, Travis, from doing during football games on the latest episode of New Heights.

On Wednesday, the recently retired Super Bowl LII champion said that Travis, who won two more rings than his older brother on the Chiefs, was banned from hurdling, supposedly over other players, during games while growing up.

In football, at any level, hurdling is a legal move if a defender is lying on the ground. However, if that defender is still on their feet, hurdling would result in a foul. 

‘Our dad banned Travis from hurdling,’ Jason, 36, said during Wednesday’s episode of the popular podcast he co-hosts with his younger brother, as new Eagles running back Saquon Barkley was invited on the show. 

Directly addressing his father, Travis replied: ‘Dad, those are instincts that got me to where I am. I’m going to f***ing hurdle somebody first game next year and end up on my f***ing head.’

Hurdling has very much been part of Travis’ game throughout the years, as pointed out by the Chiefs tight end himself, who uses the technique to pass by defenders after being found by his teammate and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. 

There are several highlights of the three-time Super Bowl champion hurdling over opponents in recent seasons, like in 2022, when he hurdled 49ers safety Talanoa Hufanga on a 27-yard catch and run. 

He also once had a 23-yard catch-and-run against the Titans. But it ended with a dangerous hurdle, as Travis was flipped over by his opponent after running into him. 

Travis has another impressive hurdle from 2018, too, as he leaped over the Patriots’ Duron Harmon, who was standing (but ducking) on his two feet, on a 17-yard catch and run. 

As of late, Travis was spotted at a California gym with his popstar girlfriend Taylor Swift in Los Angeles. 

The couple booked the entire place to themselves just to work out, forcing other gym-goers to go outside. 

Meanwhile, Jason is believed to be ‘aggressively pursued’ by ESPN to join ‘Monday Night Football’ next season.
