The NFL news cycle is usually pretty slow around this time of year for all teams, including the Eagles. Therefore, it should be no surprise that the media has seized onto Harrison Butker's controversial comments made at Benedictine College's commencement last week. Former Eagle Jason Kelce shared what his wife Kylie said about Butker's comments on a recent episode of his New Heights podcast.

On the episode in question, former Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce said that his wife, Kylie Kelce, was “frustrated” with what Butker said at the Benedictine College commencement.

Travis Kelce also issued his first response to Butker's comments. Kelce acknowledged that his teammate is a “great person” who is entitled to his views, but clarified that didn’t agree with “just about any of it besides him loving his family and his kids.”

He avoided the opportunity to respond to Butker addressing Taylor Swift as “his teammate's girlfriend” in his speech and quoting Swift's Bejeweled lyrics.

Taylor Swift has not issued a response to Butker's speech.

Travis Kelce went on to praise his mom, Donna Kelce, and his dad, Ed Kelce, for both being “homemakers” and “providers” in his childhood home.

“They were unbelievable at being present every single day of my life,” Travis said. “That was a beautiful upbringing for me. … I’m not the same person without both of them being who they were in my life.

“I’m just gonna go back to my beliefs and my family,” he continued. “My views are never gonna be the same as the man next to me.”

The Eagles won't be the same without Jason Kelce in the fold in 2024.

Mahomes, Reid, Goodell responded to Butker's controversial comments this week 

Harrison Butker's controversial comments have been in the NFL news cycle for a while now, but they finally drew responses from some of the league's top names this week.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell gave a bland response.

“We have over 3,000 players. We have executives around the league. They have diversity of opinions and thoughts just like America does. That’s something we treasure,” Goodell said, per Tom Pelissero.

His comments seem to be focused on damage control and conflict somewhat with an official statement released by the NFL. In that statement, NFL senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer Jonathan Beane pushed back on Butker's comments. Beane notes that Butker's views “are not those of the NFL as an organization” and that the league “is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion.”

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid gave similarly bland responses to Butker's comments.

Reid highlighted that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that we should respect each other's differences.

“I didn't think I need to. We're a microcosm of life. … We all respect each other's opinions. We all have a voice,” Reid said.

Meanwhile, Mahomes vouched for Butker's professionalism and character while attempting to distance himself from the controversial comments.

“I've known him for seven years. I judge him by the character he shows every day and that's a good person,” Patrick Mahomes stated, per The Athletic's Nate Taylor. “We're not always going to agree. He said certain things I don't agree with.”

Aside from Jason Kelce, nobody else connected with the Philadelphia Eagles has commented on Butker's controversial comments.
