Isaac Seumalo Is Irreplacable Says Jason Kelce

Eagles center Jason Kelce thinks Philadelphia has a big task on its hands to replace departed guard Isaac Seumalo. 

Isaac Seumalo joined the Pittsburgh Steelers in March after seven seasons with the Eagles. Jason Kelce says the team won’t be able to replace Isaac Seumalo (29) like for like.

The reason why Seumalo remains relatively unsung is largely down to injury. 2022 was just the second season in his NFL career in which he started every regular season game.

“I think he’s one of the best guards in the NFL, and I think he has been,” Jason Kelce said. 

“I think he’s one of the most consistent players I’ve ever been around, one of the most consistent people I’ve ever been around. So we’re not going to replace Isaac, there’s going to be someone new in there, and they’re going to have their attributes that they’re going to excel with, and I’m looking forward to seeing who does a really good job with that.

“Isaac is a really, really special player,” Kelce continued. “I know we’ve said that here for a long time, and I still don’t think people really truly grasp what he did for our room. And me personally, I think he’s probably the smartest player I’ve ever been around. Really, really gifted physically, mentally, across the board. So I think the Steelers are getting a steal, that’s a good pun I guess.”

“We have a number of contenders, I mean the Eagles are always drafting people and bringing in talent on the offensive line, and it’s something for me as an offensive lineman that I sure appreciate, because it’s a unit, and a lot of times it’s only going to be as good as its weakest link,” Kelce said. 

“We’ve had a lot of really good players, and we’ve been able to weather injuries, and guys have gone on and had success elsewhere, so I look forward to being in the room, going through this offseason, training camp, and season, and figuring out what this unit’s about.”
