Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts might be the best gift giver in the NFL.  Hurts, 25, got a special shout-out from his teammates Jason Kelce and Jordan Mailata after gifting them their “first-ever” Louis Vuitton duffel bags.  Mailata, 26, sat down with the NFL brothers during a recent episode of Jason, 36, and Travis Kelce’s podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, presented by Wave Sports & Entertainment.

During the episode, Mailata and Jason discussed their relationship with Hurts when Travis, 34, said, “I know he got Jason his first-ever Louis Vuitton duffel bag.”  Jason confirmed that Hurts was the one who gifted him the duffel bag and said, “That was amazing.”  Mailata agreed and added, “Yeah, that was cool,” and added, “I’m not a big designer guy, but when we got those for Christmas, I was like, you know what…that’s not bad.”  The Eagles offensive tackle said the duffel bag was “really nice,” and he would have chosen the exact make of the bag selected by Hurts if he had purchased it for himself.

Travis asked Mailata what he should get for his brother that would be as well-received as Hurts’ lavish gift.  The Chiefs star asked, “Is Jason a big birthday guy in the locker room? Does he let everybody know it’s his birthday? Does he just walk in with his birthday suit on?”  Mailata then poked fun at Jason’s controversial partiality to sandals, saying, “It’s not cold out yet so there’s still a couple of weeks left with the sandals,” referencing the signature slides Jason has been spotted wearing during multiple public appearances.

In September, Travis called out his brother for wearing sandals to the premiere of his Amazon Prime documentary, Kelce.  “You really got dressed up,” Travis said sarcastically during a September episode of New Heights. Jason explained that his wife, Kylie Kelce, had been running late to the premiere, leaving him no time to change into a different outfit after practice.

Ultimately, Jason took the blame for his fashion blunder and said Kylie “was too busy getting the entire family situated with the babysitter, and then getting herself ready, and making sure her parents were with her.”  And during the recent segment with Mailata, Travis joked that he’s going to have “jeans sent to the facility” for Jason so he “never has to rely on Kylie” to bring him jeans ever again.

Along with teaming up on the field, Jason and Mailata, plus teammate Lane Johnson, recently returned to the recording studio for the second installment of their now-annual Eagles Christmas album.  The sophomore holiday release, A Philly Special Christmas Special, is available on Dec. 1, and the album includes some surprise voices, including Patti LaBelle and Jason’s brother, Travis.

Among the songs on the album — a follow-up to their A Philly Special Christmas album from last year — is the NFL stars’ take on Mariah Carey’s beloved Christmas classic, “All I Want for Christmas is You,” which they released early.  During his appearance on New Heights, Mailata said, “We got to see the creation of the songs more this year than we did last year, and I’m going to take that with me forever,” of recording the holiday album.

Jason agreed, adding, “I’m right there with you, and I think that me, you and Lane get put on the face of the album, but there are so many musicians. It’s really fun watching that go from nothing to something.”  When LaBelle recorded a collaboration with Mailata, the Eagles tackle said it was “nerve-wracking” to sing “in front of a great” like LaBelle.  Jason told New Heights listeners that Mailata is “very talented” musically and has even “been teaching himself banjo in the locker room” this season.
