Travis Kelce ‘extremely grateful’ for contract extension with Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs secured the long-term future of star tight end Travis Kelce after inking him to a two-year extension worth roughly $34.2 million.

Despite the previous uncertainty regarding his contract situation, Kelce revealed that he had no plans of holding out even if his new deal didn’t come to fruition before training camp.

“I’m not a guy that sits out,” Kelce said on the “New Heights” podcast with his brother, Jason via ESPN. “I’m not a guy that holds out. I’m a guy that loves coming into the building, and the Chiefs know that. So, for them to want to get this done for me knowing how much blood, sweat, and tears that I put into this thing, I’m extremely grateful.”

Kelce has spent his first 11 seasons with the Chiefs, where he has cemented himself as a central piece to the puzzle.

He has become Patrick Mahomes’ primary target, which has seen him further piece together a first-ballot Hall of Fame career.

“I’m so excited and so thankful to this organization for getting it done, making me feel appreciated and compensated the right way, and on top of that I got to move the needle for the tight end room,” he said. “It’s everyone else’s job to keep making that tight end AAV [average annual value] go up and up with every single contract that’s better than mine in the future.”

Kelce will continue to remain a significant factor as the Chiefs look to earn a third straight championship.
